    If you want to find the highest natural mountain in Berlin, you've come to the right place. At 114.7 meters, it is the third highest elevation after the former Arkenberge landfill (121.9 m) and the Teufelsberg rubble mountain (120.1 m) in the Grunewald. In contrast to the other two, the Große Müggelberg was created naturally. Until around 1960 it was the highest point in Berlin.
    Until the nineties, the way up the mountain was not signposted and therefore only accessible to insiders. There are now signposts that guide hikers without a komoot, and a summit cross for several years. This has meanwhile been cut off by vandals with a chainsaw and stolen. Two years later a new cross was erected, which is secured by steel rails. Otherwise the summit is nothing, from the bench there is no view of the area, tall trees prevent that.
    However, if you consider that the entire north side of the Müggelberge has been cleared by overexploitation, then we can be glad that there are trees that are so tall again. Around 1880 it must have been very empty. The Spindler brothers, owners of the dry cleaning and laundry facility in Spindlersfeld, ensured that Berlin's highest mountains did not become completely bare by stopping overexploitation and reforestation. We owe it to the brothers, among other things, that a beautiful recreation center has emerged here.

    The highest natural elevation of Berlin - one should have been, because the Teufelsberg and the Arkenberge are indeed rubble, or Bauschuttberge

    Do not be disappointed- there are no views because of the trees. But picnicking is fine.

    The view from up here is somewhat limited, but the natural hiking trails around the "mountain" are still worth it.

    The Große Müggelberg is with 115m the highest natural elevation in Berlin's urban area. Marked by a summit cross. However, there is no viewpoint here. This is a little further southwest (or you can climb the lookout tower on the somewhat lower neighbor of the Müggelberg ...)
