    Hike as a circular hike highly recommended. Simply take the direct route from the Hohen Kasten to Brülisau. At about 2/3 of the way an innkeeper rents scooters with which one can drive into the valley.

    In winter, when the summit is over the clouds, you have an impressive view of the surrounding peaks. Unfortunately there is no possibility in the winter to come down without a cable car.

    Outlook without end. Accessible by train. Very good starting point for a great hike.

    The view from up here in all directions is wonderful and the panorama revolving restaurant is also something very special.
    Personally, there are too many people here for me, so I prefer to stay longer on the Kamor Trestenkopf, which is not far away and from which one also has a very nice view.
