Grebenzen-round

Open
Impressive hike with great altitude difference over the First Grebenzenhöhe.
Depending on the season, we walk through lush flower gardens with a wide variety of orchid species and rarities of lime flora. The mountain owes its name Grebenzen, which comes from the Slavic and means cock's crest, to its three mountain peaks, the highest of which is 1870m high.
