    The launch site is located directly at the parking lot. It's worth watching. View of Waldkirch, the Rhine plain, Kaiserstuhl and the Vosges. At the moment a new Kandel Gasthaus is being built, a kiosk is available (09.2020)

    Take-off point for paragliders and other aircraft.
    Here you can stand it for a few hours in good weather and watch the boys and girls take to the skies.

    The paragliders add to the beautiful expanse on the mountain

    You can watch the paragliders take off from the terrace of the new hotel. On a clear day you can see the Kaiserstuhl and the Vosges. It is worthwhile to hike a summit tour. The candelabra pyramid is only 15 minutes away. In about three hours you can hike the circular route around the entire massif and have a beautiful view of the Glottertal from the Thomas Hut. We recommend taking a break at the Fensterlewirt at the Gummenhütte. The circular route is well signposted.

    On nice days, with a little luck, you can watch paragliders and others take to the skies! Definitely worth seeing!

    If the weather conditions are good, you can admire the paragliders and sometimes hang-gliders as they take off here and wind their way up in the thermals. You can now even enjoy a coffee or something to eat on the terrace of the mountain hotel.
