Tips

    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.

    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.

    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.
