The Geisingberg lies between the mining town of Altenberg and the village of Geising. It is basalt hill, 824 m above the sea level.  There are many routes leading to the top, the easiest goes from Altenberg.  Look out tower and small mountain hut with refreshment possibilty await you on the top. 
In addition to the Pinge, the Geisingberg is a noticeable landmark. The mountain is a popular hiking destination all year round. At the top of Geisingberg there is a mountain hut, where you can get some refreshment, rest and regain your energy.The view from the Louis tower is warmly recommended.
