    The place has something mystical. The summit is a slightly larger plateau and hikers and mountain bikers emerge from all directions and disappear again.

    From the Altkönig you have a wonderful view of the great Feldberg and the Taunus. The climb is worthwhile anyway.

    The Altkönig is very popular with hikers and cyclists alike.
    You are seldom alone there even in bad weather.
    There are a lot of beautiful ways up.

    A beautiful mountain in my opinion more beautiful than the Feldberg, although not quite so high but much more beautiful above

    In good visibility a fantastic view of the Feldberg. Especially nice in winter with thick snow cover.

    One of the most beautiful peaks in the Taunus with benches for rest and cooking!

    The Altkönig is worth a trip in every season.
    There is no real "summit" but a large plateau with many trees and shrubs and also meadow sections.
    A very nice place to switch off, to rest before you continue hiking.

    In addition, really great views of the Great Feldberg and also on Königstein with its castle ruins.

    Here you have the feeling that you have escaped from the Rhine-Main metropolitan area.

    Great highlight in the Taunus, it's not a peak as one might expect but rather a large plateau. It offers a view towards Großer Feldberg on the NW side and Kronberg/Königstein on the southern side.
    Very popular for mountain biking and as a hiking highlight.

    This was my greatest hike so far, with the best views. Have already made many walks, but to these I think again and again. As soon as spring comes, I will do this tour again.

    The ascent is always worthwhile against a lunatic outlook.
