    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 (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 you have no view of the area, tall trees prevent that.
    However, if you consider that the entire north side of the Müggelberge was cleared by overexploitation, then we can be happy 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 factory in Spindlersfeld, made sure 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 ...)

    If you want to climb the Top-of-Germany 16-Summits, you cannot avoid the Großer Müggelberg. Ultimately, as part of this challenge, it is important to climb the highest elevation of all 16 federal states and the Müggelberg is the highest natural elevation in Berlin.
    Logically, high alpine terrain is not to be expected, but you can approach the summit on different paths and from different sides and it can be a bit steeper in the middle of Berlin. The summit itself is located in the middle of the forest and offers no view as the trees around it are too high. But there is a summit cross that shows the correct position. If you are looking for a view, you have to go to and on the nearby, reopened Müggelturm.
    A worthwhile detour from the summit leads to the foot of the Müggelberg. The path is lined with numerous information boards and when you arrive at the bottom you can visit the Teufelsmoor on safe wooden walkways and keep an eye out for the animals and insects that live there.
