We took the steam train up to the top, fantastic views around the whole of the top of the mountain, we did part of the walk at the top, but due to being part of a tour we didn't have long there.

We were surprised by the great system of canals and lakes here.. they powered the mines many years ago and many remain in great shape. The countryside is beautiful and the towns well preserved. Much history of the separation of Germany too.

We did not have this shot and had no problems! If you are hiking there are trails so you don't have to walk through brush.
