    On the Kickelhahn there is an observation tower from 1855, a Telekom tower, a transmission mast, the Goethe house, the foundations of a hunting lodge and a restaurant. The Jagdhaus Gabelbach and the Berghotel Gabelbach are south of the summit.

    Who is first up! Goethe would be jealous of this prospect, he had to enjoy the view 24m lower, because there was not the tower in his time. Do you see the snow head?

    Great view from the tower or in front and delicious sausage next door.

    Even though there is often a dreamlike outlook and distant view, the wind here is often not to be underestimated.

    As of February 2020, the tower is unfortunately scaffolded and not accessible. But the climb is still nice and there is a great view. An inn takes care of your physical well-being.

    - Currently and probably until September 2020 the tower is still scaffolded and therefore not accessible -

    The trip there is still worth it, because the view is beautiful. The restaurant is open.

    Also interesting is the replica of the hunting grounds of the Weimar dukes directly on the Kickelhahn.

    Just arrive, sit down and relaxing. Even on cooler days, the sun warms on the Kickelhahn. In the local inn you get drinks and food.

    The restaurant is currently closed, the grate is cold, the tower is scaffolded, the view is fabulous to the Schneekopf, benches and tables are enough for a distance in C - times there, enjoy a picnic out of the backpack and life is beautiful😊

    If you have time and muse and the weather cooperates, you should definitely watch the sunset. The view of the western area is breathtaking for our low mountain range. Definitely to be recommended.
