Dobel - from no other place can the top viewpoint “Schweizererkopfhütte” be reached without too much climbing. If the visibility is good, there are breathtaking views from the Swiss head to the Vosges and sometimes even across the Zabern valley to Lorraine. To the north you can see the Speyer Imperial Cathedral and to the east you can see the Swabian Forest.
If you see the dense coniferous forests up here today, you can hardly imagine that the plateau between Kaltenbronn and Dobel was once almost unforested and for centuries large herds of cattle grazed on the bare areas of the mill. The mountain names still tell of it today.

The refuge is located north of the Swiss head on the highest slope of the Albtal at an altitude of 835 m above sea level.
Where the Swiss head hut is today was until 13 years ago dense forest vegetation without a view. The century-old Lothar, on the second day of Christmas in 1999, also blew away the trees in rows on this westward mountain slope. To commemorate the Jahrhundertorkan, the Swiss Head Hut was built in June 2001.
