On the highest peak of the cold field, the highest elevation of the Ostalb, built in 1908, 1931 acquired and converted by the Swabian Albverein Wanderheim, 1976/77 it was expanded and modernized. The wide plateau with junipers, meadows, fields and forest is an ideal recreational area. Two lookout cliffs - Tannhaldenstein and Christentalfelsen - provide exceptionally scenic views of the Filsalb and Ostalb mountains. Hornberg (gliding school), Rechbergle and Galgenberg are in front of the large mountain massif. At the Furtlepass (630 m) the cold field is connected to the Alb plateau. The Reiterleskapelle am Westfuss is one of the most atmospheric pictures of the Alb.

A really great excursion area with countless rest areas and managed cabins. The Wanderheim Franz-Keller-Haus (781mNN) is open all year round on weekends and public holidays (except Christmas). From the mountain definitely no one hungry again down.

Also very popular with locals. Either buy something on site or grill yourself at the fire pit (at least seems to be allowed).
Lots of seating, large lawn to play.

Great hiking home [781m] on the "Kalten Feld". A lot going on at the weekend, but there are enough opportunities to "spread out" and barbecue area (s).

When there is little or nothing going on, it is most beautiful.

The highest point of the Ostalbkreis at 781m above sea level is always worth a visit. Especially now in winter in a magnificent snowy landscape

Really nice, but if there are children with you, we recommend having your own toys (ball / frisbee)
