The "rocks of glass" in Hohenbocka are not enough for an entire mountain range, but they are nevertheless an absolute uniqueness in the Lusatian lake landscape characterised by flat pine forests that you should not miss!

The approximately 18-kilometre circular walk with a stopover in Buck's Switzerland, at the aforementioned rocks, starts in Hosena at the railway station. You walk parallel to the tracks to the centre of the village. After crossing the railway line, you stand in front of the church in Hosena, from where the signposting begins. Pass the Friesian horse farm and cross the tracks again. From here, follow the signs to the Senftenberger See lookout tower, which offers a wide view over the Senftenberg region. From Senftenberger See, the trail now leads to Peickwitz. At the end of Peickwitz you will find a very nice rest area. From here to the crossing of the L581 there is no separate hiking trail, so you have to walk on the road here. Now the highlight of the hiking trail is approaching: the two to three metre high rocks made of hardened glass sand, which offer a good opportunity to take a short breather or have a picnic. Return via the Possenberg and follow the red bar on white past the fairytale castle in Hohenbocka until you reach Hosena.
