The summit, which is also known as the dragon's head, is still called so on some maps. The shape of the rock at the foot of the mountain is reminiscent of a dragon's head. But residents calling  it Kannelberg now. The mountain is located in the forest between Nassau, Holzhau and Hermsdorf / Erzgebirge. On the Kannelberg you will find a stamp point that identifies the summit as one of the destinations of the "14 eight-thousanders" tour.
