The horse’s head forms the south-western foothill of the Wasserkuppe. Its steep flanks and rocky peak give the mountain an almost alpine flair.
A steeper one leads from Lake Guckaisee past Goldborn up to Pferdskopf. Coming from the Wasserkuppe you can climb the summit over several wooden steps.
Starting point for hang- and paragliding
Traditionally, hang-gliders and paragliders take off from Pferdskopf for flights with north-westerly winds. Paragliding tandem flights are also offered here in this wind direction.
