Great Arber Mountain in Bavaria, Germany

It was summer of August when we had the chance to drive around Bayerischerwald or Bavaria Forest. One of the mountains we passed-by and drove in is the Großer Arber , known in English as Great Arber. It has an elevation of 1,456 metres (4,777 ft) and the the highest peak of the Bavarian-Bohemian-mountain ridge. Near the Great Arber is a smaller mountain called in German as the Kleiner Arber.

That was a fascinating scenery to see in this part of Bavaria in Germany.

Although geographically belonging to the Bohemian Forest, it is often referred to as “King of the Bavarian Forest”. It is one of Germany’s most famous skiing resorts besides the Bavarian Alps.
Großer Arber is the only peak of the Bavarian-Bohemian-Mountain Ridge above the climatic timberline.
On top were two military radar stations, built during the Cold War as the mountain is very close to the Czech border. They are still operational at a reduced scale, serving both civilian and military purposes.
