    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.

    With the ascent of Feldberg you have climbed the highest mountain of Baden-Württemberg with 1493 m and the highest elevation of all German low mountain ranges. In the nature reserve around the mountain you will find extraordinary plant species. On the Feldberg there is always a stiff breeze that makes you shiver: the annual average temperature is 3.9 ° C and the summit is covered with snow on 157 days of the year.

    The Feldberg offers one of the most comprehensive panoramas in Germany, especially in winter inversionswetterlage prevails. In the west you can see the entire Vosges from the Alsatian Belchen to the Donon and the Odilienberg (great monastery, also visit!) Beyond the Upper Rhine Graben. In the north one sees the Hornisgrinde, in the northeast the whole chain of the Swabian Alb, in particular the Lemberg, to the right of it the Hegauvulkane.
    In the south, the Alps, from the Alpspitze and the Zugspitze in the east extend over the Allgäu Alps, the Lechquellengebirge, Verwallgruppe and Silvretta; then in the Western Alps the Alpstein with the Säntis, the mountains around the Walensee, the Glarus Alps with Ringelspitz, Glärnisch and Tödi, the Piz Gannaretsch, the Urner Alps, Bernese Alps, Grand Combin and Mont Blanc up to the Friborg Prealps in the southwest. In front of the Western Alps, and especially to the right of the Mont Blanc, the Swiss Jura with the Chasseral as the highest point stretches. The panorama thus extends from Italy to southwestern Germany and from Austria to France.

    The highest point of the field mountain is not on the Bismarck monument and not on the observation tower. He lies on the other side at the weather station. Here's the point on a platform along with the donation engraving.

    it pays to be there very early in summer! Then feels very different from the usual hype! Nature there is still primeval and in the morning or evening indescribable sunsets and alpine views.

    The Feldberg is 1493 m above sea level. NHN the highest mountain in Baden-Württemberg. It also represents the highest elevation of all German low mountain ranges, making it the highest mountain in Germany outside the Alps.

    The paths are marked with high posts and thus recognizable even in snow and fog.

    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.

    The Feldberg was probably once owned by Stuttgarter Hofbräu - they then donated the mountain to the Black Forest Association.

    Sadly, there are no trees around, but you’ll have a nice view on the Alps and France

    an excursion in every season is worthwhile on the highest! You should only be dressed appropriately. Weather can change unexpectedly up here and sometimes become very threatening.

    If you visit the southern Black Forest, you must have been on the Feldberg at least once. That is a duty, so to speak! ;)

    The lookout tower on the Großer Feldberg has a height of about 40 meters and offers an all-glass viewing platform, which is reached by a closed staircase after about 100 steps.
