    The highest peak of the Haardt offers a gigantic view over the entire Rhine plain. Under one extends a sea of grape vines, left and right lined with dry pine forests on the slopes of Haardt. On the top there is a restaurant, from whose terrace you can enjoy this view.

    From here it is still a few meters to the summit. The road from here is unfortunately very bad, so you have to be careful when driving downhill!

    The stop machines no longer exist. Still a great climb. Unfortunately, there is only one unpaved path to the summit, but you can drive it with caution.

    The "road" from the parking lot to the summit is only an unpaved forest path, but you can drive it with a little caution. You have to go up there. Absolutely.

    To the left of the parking lot, take the driveway to the hut.

    Highest rise in the area. Incline between 6 - 8%, so easy to ride. The last meters of the summit can only be reached by piste, but from 25 mm onwards.

    Great view. Refreshments (hearty).

    Three nice downhill options: Maikammer curvy, Totenkopf / Breitenstein curvy and long, Edenkoben long and fast!

    Zur Kalmit offers the ascent with the most elevation gain from the Rhine Valley in the Palatinate. The view of the Rhine plain is sensational! A forest path leads from the parking lot (which can also be done with a racing bike with caution) to the hut. So absolutely to the top.

    The Kalmit is probably a cult. It's also nice, even if I think the cult is excessive.

    The Kalmit West Ramp is a fun little road that springs from the Totenkopfrunde. On the east side it goes with spectacular views of the Upper Rhine Plain down to Maikammer.

    The view is above. The pictures show the footpath. With the bike it goes over the access road to the hut. Mobile from 25 mm.

    Make absolutely. The Kalmit and road bike simply fit together. It is not without reason that there is a Stoppomat at the base of the Kalmit.

    The highest mountain in the area. A nice relatively long but moderate ascent through the forest is rewarded with a great view. Here are somehow always cyclists on the way.

    The climb is great to ride and you will be rewarded with a great view!

    You can also go by bike instead of going up the stairs in the photo.

    Ideal for e-bikes for exhausting.
    I can not recommend the forest trails: too steep and too much wood across.

    Wonderful view over the Palatinate to the Black Forest. Delicious coffee and cake in the hut.

    - Approach to Kalmit via Maikammer. It is steeper (about 10%) at the beginning (after leaving the village) and only becomes a little flatter at the back.
    - Ascent from Maikammer after leaving the village approx. 6 km. If you continue up to Kalmit (bus turning point), another approx. 1 km.
    - I think it's better to get there from St. Martin, because it's not that steep. Only in St. Martin you have to do 2 small steep climbs (approx. 100m) with more than 10%, then relatively rhythmically between 4% -7%.
