    Inversionswetterlage particularly attractive. The surrounding valleys as well as the Rhine and Lake Constance lie under a sea of ​​clouds and here you have bright sunshine. Fortunately not as busy as on the neighboring Feldberg.

  • At 1,415 meters, the Herzogenhorn is the second highest peak in the Black Forest holiday region and also the local mountain of Bernau.

    From the summit you can reach the rustic mountain inn Krunkelbachhütte, located above the Bernau high valley, after about half an hour of descent. The hiker can also spend the night here.

  • Unique view of the Feldberg and the Belchen and various valleys, with good weather conditions on the Alps in Switzerland, a bit steep ascent from direction Krunkelbachhütte, but worth it in any case, a delicious Vesper not forgotten. :-)

  • View around mountains like Belchen, Feldberg and the Swiss Alps - with good weather conditions and foresight. Not too crowded, good seating and picnic opportunities and the opportunity to take some great pano photos in sunshine and light wind. Ideal for hot summer days.

  • From the Herzogenhorn it is worth the return route via the Krunkelbach hut. Since a stop is recommended. View from the Herzogenhorn direction Swiss Alps on the one hand and Feldberg on the other are indescribably beautiful.

  • The Herzogenhorn is located in the immediate vicinity of the Feldberg and impresses in the early morning so that you can simply enjoy its peace alone and can experience the outstanding nature around .. a summit with summit cross and book and a few seats, beautifully accessible from Grafenmatt or even steeper and more demanding from Bernau.

  • We ended up here by chance because on the second day we decided on a tour with fewer kilometers. To be honest, I've never had such a beautiful view over the cloud cover. Highly recommended! The ascent wasn't that strenuous either :)
