Here you stand on the highest elevation in Baden-Württemberg and the highest peak of all German low mountain ranges: the summit of the Feldberg at 1,493 meters altitude. The majority of the Feldberg is under nature conservation. The nature reserve is the oldest and largest Baden-Württemberg. Since 1989, the so-called Feldberg rangers take care of the flora and fauna.

It is the highest mountain in the Black Forest. If the weather is right you can see the Alps very well. Unfortunately, when the weather is nice, the summit is very crowded because of the cable car. The impressive landscape makes up for it, however.

The Feldberg offers one of the most comprehensive panoramas in Germany, especially when there is inversion weather in winter. In the west, beyond the Upper Rhine Rift, you can see the entire Vosges from the Alsatian Belchen to the Donon and the Odilienberg (great monastery, visit too!). In the north you can see the Hornisgrinde, in the northeast the whole chain of the Swabian Alb, especially the Lemberg, to the right of it the Hegau volcanoes.
The Alps extend in the south, from the Alpspitze and the Zugspitze in the east over the Allgäu Alps, the Lechquellen Mountains, Verwallgruppe and Silvretta; then in the western Alps the Alpstein with the Säntis, the mountains around the Walensee, the Glarner Alps with the Ringelspitz, Glärnisch and Tödi, the Piz Gannaretsch, the Urner Alps, Bernese Alps, Grand Combin and Mont Blanc up to the Freiburg Pre-Alps in the southwest. The Swiss Jura stretches in front of the Western Alps and then especially to the right of Mont Blanc, with the Chasseral as the highest point. The panorama thus stretches from Italy to southwest Germany and from Austria to France.

Please, really not underestimate - head coverage, water for the four-legged friend (if there is) and for yourself. Heatstroke, dehydration, exhaustion - these are all reasons why the mountain rescue team is approaching. Better to take care of it. The majority of tourists and visitors come up via the Feldberg cable car from the Haus der Natur and do not stay too long, but from 10 o'clock in the morning the crowd is already large. It's best to book a nice spot for sunrise at 6 o'clock in the morning. The train is not there yet, but you're the first one up. There are some places where you can make yourself comfortable, but generally there is no escape to the left or right in the nature == Bisosphärenreservat, nature conservation. If you have enough stamina and motivation, you should take a look at my lap.
