Three peaks in one day only, this is one of the most favourite trails in the recreational area of Altenberg.

The tour starts from Altenberg from the train station. You take the Dippoldiswaldertraße and Neustadtstraße towards Geisingberg.  You will walk past the Altenberg Pinge, through meadows where orchids bloom in spring, to reach the 824 m high Geisingberg.  In addition to the mountain hut, you will also find the Louisenturm lookout tower at the top, which offers a panoramic view of the entire recreational area. Afterwards, you head sharply downhill in the direction of Geising. You will pass through the historic centre of Geising, then pass the natural swimming pool Hüttenteich and then climb to the Kohlhaukuppe ( 786 m above sea level ) . At the top there is a mountain hut famous for its garlic specialties and a lookout tower. You will then continue along the German-Czech border towards Zinnwald, which you will cross and head towards the Lugsteins - red-coloured rocks with a short detour leading to them. You then continue along the "Schneise 30" path and reach the famous peak with a beautiful view, the Kahleberg ( 905 m above sea level ). The route then continues along the path called "I-Flügel" and "Alten Zaunhäuser Weg" to Altenberg, where this beautiful hike ends.
