From the summit of the Falkenstein (1,315 m) with a simple cross on the summit you have a wonderful view of the Great Arber and the mountains of the Bavarian Forest. You can make a stop during the summer season and even stay overnight in a hut. The hiking area Zwiesler Winkel with the hiking attractions Höllbachgspreng, Zwiesler Waldhaus, Schwellhäusel, Watzlik-Hain and Urwaldpfad is located below.
You can reach the hiking area of Falkenstein from Zwiesel by car, driving toward Bavarian Eisenstein, or from Zwiesel by forest train or Falkenstein bus. The Falkenstein is justifiably considered as one of the most beautiful hiking regions in the Bavarian Forest.
