    The climb to the Altusknipp is definitely worth it. A great view from the summit towards the Eifel

    One of the highest elevation in the Mechernicher Stadtgebiet. In the years 2017 and 18, the upper part unfortunately fell victim to the flames. Therefore, many trees still look charred.

    At the end of June 2017 there was a forest fire on the Altusknipp. The consequences are clearly visible!

    Very nice vantage point at 375 m above sea level. A visit is worthwhile, especially since the way there is neither strenuous nor particularly demanding.

    From here you have a great view towards Kall.
    Only fire should not be played here as the burned earth and trees prove. There is no fire-fighting water up here and the fire department would have to lay long hose lines.
