Vlčí hora

Lookout tower with a panoramic view of the entire border region from Kahleberg to the Zittau Mountains

On the 581 m high Vlčí Hora (German Wolfsberg) there is an lookout tower. It was built in 1888-1889. From its platform you have a great panoramic view over the surrounding hills of the Schluckenauer Zipfel into the Lusatian Mountains and Zittau Mountains, to the Jeschken near Liberec and the Jizera Mountains, in good visibility also to the Giant Mountains, the Bohemian and Saxon Switzerland, the Bohemian Central Mountains and the Ore Mountains.

The Vlčí hora is located about one kilometre northeast of the Lusatian Fault in the Lusatian granite area. The crest is formed by a nepheline feldspar basalt, which causes a strong deviation of the compass needle (up to 40°) due to its high magnetite content.

The Vlčí hora is also a station of the Köglerova naučná stezka (Kögler's Nature Trail), a 23 km long nature trail through the surroundings of Krásná Lípa.
