With its 1333 meters, the Dreisessel is the eighth highest mountain in the Bavarian Forest. Once the kings of Bavaria, Bohemia and Austria gathered here on the top of the mountain to set the borders of their lands. Even today, the Dreisesselberg is considered a landmark for the border triangle Czech Republic, Austria and Germany. Because of the paved hiking trail to the summit Dreisessel is very popular as a destination for families with baby carriages and older people. The 8 m high stone columns offer a magnificent view of the southeastern Bavarian Forest.
The hiking area around the Dreisessel is one of the most varied hiking areas of the Bavarian Forest.
