    Highlight as destination of the Kandelhöhenweg from Freiburg.
    The last climb is depleting the forces, but the view from the candelabra pyramid is phenomenal and compensates for the effort ⛰

    Great views and especially sunsets. To reach over numerous hiking trails with different degrees of difficulty.

    From the Kandel you can make tandem flights with a paraglider or a kite. Timely registration and good weather are prerequisites.

    When there is fog in the valley, the sun shines at the top.

    I had walked with my son from Simonswald over the waterfalls to Kandel. The tour was very demanding and also exhausting. A return trip from Kandel to Waldkirch by bus was planned. There are a few stops but no timetables. Unfortunately, due to the bad road to Waldkirch no bus, but should be back in planning. The large gas station has been closed for quite some time, but there is a kiosk. After we had strengthened, it then went downhill to Waldkirch.

    The Kandel is 1241.4 m above sea level. NHN the highest elevation in the Middle Black Forest and the local mountain of the city Waldkirch. Due to its exposed position it looks more impressive than neighboring mountains of comparable height.

    The Kandel with a height of 1242 m is one of the most beautiful panoramic mountains in the Black Forest. A visit is a must!

    Whoever stands here made it. Arrived at the top and just enjoying the view. In clear weather you can see far over the Vosges

    Simple and somewhat difficult paths lead to the Kandelpyramide. The view is worthwhile.
