West of Zinnwald on the German-Czech border lie the "Big" and "Small" Lugstein, two rocky elevations. Definitely worth to visit, the reddish porphyry rocks are easy to climb on and offer a beautiful view from above. A summit of the "14 eight-thousanders in the Eastern Ore Mountains" - the Himalayas in the Eastern Ore Mountains! Height: 899 m
The two Lugstein are close to each other, opposite the unique Georgenfeld high moor. At the large Lugstein you can find a stamping point that distinguishes the summit as a target of "14 eight-thousanders" tour. You can obtain all information about this from the Altenberg Tourist Information Office.

The Great Lugstein is the highest of the "14 eight-thousanders tour" in the Eastern Ore Mountains. The view from the top is breathtaking. You will discover peaks like Milešovka (Milleschauer), Kletecna (Little Milleschauer) and Bournák (Stürmer). Ore mountains ridge, which is about 150 km long, lead nearby the Großer Lugstein.
