    A worthwhile mountain stage, as not too steep climbs up to be feared. The view is great. You meet many gnomes cyclists.

    The Great Feldberg from Oberursel is well made with a steady rise and not too steep.

    Ascent to Feldberg via Schmitten -> Seelenberg -> Oberreifenberg. Beautiful woody track without much traffic.

    Great destination for more demanding tours. Incl. Restaurant, kiosk, lookout tower and great views all around. The falconry is worth a visit!

    There are certainly more beautiful places than the built-up summit of the Hessian Feldberg, BUT of course you have a magnificent view in almost all directions, if you get a look between or over the trees. The climb is already neat, but feasible and then of course follows a great departure.

    The Great Feldberg (also Feldberg in the Taunus, often only Feldberg) is the highest mountain in the southwest of Hesse located Mittelgebirge Taunus and the entire Rhenish Slate Mountains. The details of its exact height are depending on the source between 878 [and 881.5 m above sea level. NHN height (see section Mountain height) .🚴♂️
    With a prominence of 670 m (over the saddle near Großen-Buseck near Gießen) and a dominance of 101 km (against the Dammersfeldkuppe in the Rhön) it is one of the most striking high mountain peaks in Germany.
    The Feldberg massif, consisting of Groß Feldberg and the nearby Kleiner Feldberg (825.2 m), is part of the Taunus main ridge (Hoher Taunus or also called Hochtaunus).
    Its outstanding height made the Great Feldberg from 1935 to the experimental area for early German television technology. It is a popular winter sports resort, but it loses its appeal because of the increasingly frequent lack of snow among winter sports enthusiasts. The mountain, whose top area is unwooded, is a popular destination.
    The Great Feldberg rises in the Taunus Nature Park and the Hochtaunuskreis within the district of Niederreifenberg, which belongs to the municipality Schmitten, whose nucleus is north of the mountain. Oberursel is located east, Kronberg southeast, Königstein south and glassworks southwest. Just 1.4 km south-southwest is the Kleine Feldberg, 2.85 km southeast of the Altkönig (798.2 m) .🚴♂️

    The Große Feldberg is the highest peak in the Taunus Mountains at 878.5 meters and of the entire Rhine slate plateau. The mountain is located between Königstein im Taunus and the town of Schmitten.

    At the top are a watchtower built in 1902 and a television tower from the Hessischer Rundfunk. The commercial radio station Hit Radio FFH broadcasts via this tower.

    Great reward for the climb to Feldberg with a rapid descent. But beware. There is often a lot of activity behind the curve in the Windeck car park.

    Why should you go up?
    Firstly, because it is the Great Feldberg
    Second, because it's a long descent
    Third, because it has a great view

    A really great view. The detour is worth it for this alone.
