The longest descent in northern Bavaria on the Ochsenkopf

Fun on the slope descents in the Alps: this is possible at the ski resort on the Ochsenkopf in the Fichtel mountains. The two longest descents in northern Bavaria are tempting. And the flat slopes with surface lift mean that even skiing newbies can have go without any fear. Cross-country skiers will find an extensive cross-country network all around the Ochsenkopf mountain. To reach the ski resort we recommended that you take one of the regional buses run by the Nuremberg transport authority (VGN) from Bayreuth station: for example the number 329 bus towards “Fichtelberg”, until the stop “Bischofsgrün Schwebebahn Nord”.
