Arzbergrundweg, St. Jakob im Walde

The hike in St. Jakob im Walde is also well suited for families. Wonderful views of the Joglland-Waldheimat region await.
St. Jakob im Walde was settled about 800 years ago, the first documentary mention was in 1209. The place was hit by fire disasters in 1886 and 1945. After the end of the war the place was rebuilt with a lot of diligence to a tourist community. The path leads you to numerous power points in the Joglland, provides you with magnificent panoramic views and also shows you the former ore mines, an important source of income in those days.

One of these magnificent panoramic views awaits you at the Arzberg summit cross at 1111 meters above sea level. You should not miss the stop at the Arzberghütte, which is located a little below.
