    So far, the tower was always open. Should he ever be closed - the key is in the mountain inn.

    From the tower you have a great panoramic view. Leckers food is right next to the mountain inn.

    Fantastic view from the walk-in observation tower (built in 1880 in honor of Ludwig I) and good food in the neighboring inn (opening hours: 10: 00-00: 00, MONDAYS REST DAY!).

    This tour is best in good weather, as you can look from the lookout to Frankfurt and get a nice view of the Kahlgrund. In the direction of Aschaffenburg you can see approaches of the Odenwald.

    On the Kahlgrund Tricorn:
    The Kahlgrund Tricorn is a new way on old paths. Total distance 73 km. It is best to hike it on stages. Directions - Stage 6:
    Kälberau train station - pilgrimage church Maria am Rauen Wind - ascent to the Hahnenkamm summit (250 m difference in altitude) - picture oak - Ludwigsturm - stamp height - Steiner Berg - Rappacher chapel - stop in Rappach - game reserve - train station in Mömbris:
    12-14 km, by variant: walking time 4 hours, two ascents, beautiful views in the second half to Molkenberg, Angelsberg, Gunzenbach, Rothengrund, Mömbris and always in the distance to the church of Johannesberg.

    Just enjoy the view as long as the trees have not grown too tall again.

    The lookout tower always offers spectacular views of the Rhine-Main, and the Hahnenkamm inn is rustic, hearty fare. 'Inn' days should be envious, then it's awfully full; or you just bring patience.
