At 1,051 m above sea level , the Schneeberg is the highest mountain in the Fichtelgebirge, a mountain range in Upper Franconia in northeast Bavaria, Germany. It can be readily identified from a distance by its squat tower - a relic of the Cold War. The summit comprises a jumble of granite rocks and a rock pillar on which the Backöfele observation tower stands and is still dominated by the relics of military installations including its Cold War listening post.
The name Schneeberg may be derived from snede . However, it is more likely that the name comes from Schnee and the fact that the mountain is snow-capped for long periods of time.
