Tips

  • Moin Weite Welt (Markus)

    In good weather, you have in particular from the branch tower a fabulous panoramic view, in bad weather you do not see the hand in front of his eyes, because the summit is often in the fog. For the physical well-being of the restaurant provides directly on the summit plateau. Incidentally, it is often incorrectly claimed that the Kahle Asten is the highest mountain in NRW, but the Langenberg about ten kilometers northeast is still a few meters higher.

    The tower itself is not bad, but the view and the landscape around it just great.

    Lookout tower with restaurant. In clear weather, the climb to the tower is worthwhile.

    The mountain heath on the Kahler Asten, with 841 m above sea level, the second highest elevation of the Rhenish Slate Mountains to the Langenberg (843 m above sea level), is the highest high heath on the roof of Westphalia. At the southern edge of the Hochheide, the only periodically water-bearing Lennequelle comes to light. With a height of 820 m above sea level, it is the highest source in north-western Germany.

    As a forest-free Hochheide the view is secured there

    In winter a great hiking destination to take a lap through the snow. However, very crowded and almost overcrowded during the holiday season.

    The landscape is really recommended in every season.

    Very busy during the holidays. Great view from the tower over the entire Sauerland.

    Worth a trip in every season. Lots of people are here during the holidays.

    At the summit of the Kahler Asten stands at 841 m height of the mountain inn Kahler Asten (hotel restaurant) affiliated branch tower, a lookout tower. From its platform, which lies at 862 m altitude, offers all-round visibility, especially in the Rothaargebirge. In very good visibility conditions, the view extends to Brocken, 163 km away, in the Harz Mountains (Saxony-Anhalt).

    Especially when the heather is in bloom, the Bald Asten is a sea of flowers. There is also a hotel up here. At 841.9 meters, it is the third highest mountain in the Rothaargebirge after the Langenberg and Hegekopf and the second highest mountain in North Rhine-Westphalia after the Langenberg. The Lenne and Odeborn springs and a high heath are located on the mountain.
