Tips

  • Heinz

    A hike to the castle ruin Hohenhewen is worthwhile just because of the magnificent view. An observation platform was added to the rest of the keep, from which you can see the Hegauberge, Lake Constance and the Swabian Alb in the north. In clear weather with a clear view also the Alps and the Black Forest.

    The hiker has to climb an ascent of 300 m to the ruin in order to enjoy the wonderful view over the entire Hegau and even with a beautiful view to Lake Constance and the Alps.
    A lookout tower is also on the top of the mountain.
    Good footwear is recommended.
    Barbecue areas exist at the Almenhütte and on the Hohenhewen.
    Don't forget firewood or coal ... Otherwise the sausages stay cold 😂👍

    Based on the remains of the old north tower of the castle, a viewing platform was built at the end of the 19th century that towers over the remains of the castle and the trees and gives an unbelievably wide view of the landscape.

    Lookout tower with a 360 degree view with a beautiful view of the Hegau.
    With a distant view you can see Lake Constance or the Swiss Alps.

    Great view, nice rest area with barbecue area.
    The climb to the Hohenhewen is not entirely without: 300 vertical meters over a length of 2.2 km

    One of the best and most ingenious viewpoints in Hegau!

    On the viewing platform, which can be reached via the spiral staircase, you have a 360 ° view!
    Even if you should be free from fear of heights. My pictures are a bit shaky 😅. But the climb was definitely worth it.

    For those who prefer not to climb the viewing platform - numerous other viewpoints reward you with the best panoramic view!

    The ascent is tough, but the unbelievably wide view over the Hegau definitely makes up for the effort.
