Scenic Viewpoint
“in 35 Autominuten; schöne Wanderung im oberösterreichischen Mühlviertel. Man passiert den 24 m hohen Aussichtsturm Moldaublick auf 1.041 m mit herrlichem Dreiländerblick über das „südböhmische Meer“ - den Moldaustausee in Tschechien – und den Böhmerwald. Am Moldaublick stehen und den Blick über das südböhmische Meer (Moldaustausee) schweifen lassen, das ist wohl der Höhepunkt dieser Wanderung! Ausgangspunkt dieser Wanderung ist beim Jugendgästehaus in Ulrichsberg.Weg Nr. 1. Mit dem Wander- und Radbus (9. Juli bis 11. September 2016) kommen Sie ab Rohrbach-Berg bequem nach Aigen-Schlägl. Benutzung des Wander- und Radbusses ist mit der Böhmerwald-Card gratis!”

“Eagle's Nest The road leading from Obersalzberg (formerly Hitler's home and southern headquarters) to the Eagle's Nest parking lot is considered to be a feat of engineering. Perched at 1.834 m (6.017 ft), the building itself was a project of Martin Bormann's and given to Adolf Hitler for his 50th birthday as a teahouse for diplomats. The Eagle's Nest remained unscathed from the bombing of the Allied Forces during WWII. Since 1952 it has been open to the public as a mountain top restaurant with a spectacular view and is accessed only by special mountain buses from Obersalzberg. Due to its high elevation the Eagle's Nest is open in summer only, usually from about mid-May through October. ”
