Tips

  • Heinz

    On the summit is the Kalmithaus, a managed hut of the Palatinate Forest Association, a weather station and a mast, which also carries an amateur radio relay.

    Great view over the Rhine plain.
    Rest stop is the Ludwidshafener hut on the Kalmit. Second highest mountain of the Palatinate.

    The Kalmit, also known as the Great Kalmit, at Maikammer in the Rhineland-Palatinate district Southern Wine Route is with 672.6 m above sea level. NHN the highest mountain in the Palatinate Forest. Very close to the rocky sea. The name is apt. A sea full of rocks.

    Nice view - and good refreshments in the Ludwigshafener hut. At my stop today was the announcement made that the toilet is locked for 10 minutes, because the pump which pumped water from Maikammer high on the Kalmit was a bit overloaded and it takes a while until the water tank was refilled. Was also good going on today.

    The view is awesome, the entertainment quite ok.
    Too bad the oversized parking spaces are just below, but a bit disturbing.
    Despite everything highly recommended.

    The Kalmit summit with its managed by the Palatinate Forest Club hut is a highlight in any season and definitely worth a hike ... alone because of the fantastic view.

    Who can, visit the Hohe Loog Hut on a Saturday. A relaxing atmosphere, no long queues at the bar and balanced staff we have encountered today. In addition - despite the best weather - on the narrow paths and otherwise almost no mountain bikers on the way.

    A big movie theater. Definitely take a break. Depending on the running direction, do not forget the PWV hut Hohe Loog. And remember, professionals put their glasses right in the dish rack at the counter.

    The highest mountain in the Palatinate Forest is of course a must for every hiker. Upstairs there is a viewing terrace with benches and tables.
