    Today's stage takes you high out to the 1,241-meter-high summit of the Kandel. It is considered a local mountain of Waldkirch, your starting point for the almost 18-kilometer hike. Well rested, you start the climb, a total of 1,000 meters in altitude to master.Gradually you leave the Elz Valley and walk up higher and higher. During your breather, you'll already get a taste of the fantastic views that await you from the summit. Not for nothing the Kandel is also referred to as a prince among the Black Forest mountains.At the top of the summit you have earned yourself a long break. What a panorama! In good weather you can look over the Rhine plain to France. If you do not have your own snack, you can eat at the Berggasthaus Kandelhof.Continue gently downhill towards St. Peter. On the way you continue to enjoy the beautiful view of the surrounding Black Forest mountains towards Breisgau and Hochschwarzwald. The stage ends at the campsite in St. Peter. In the village you will find several inns for dinner and overnight. Before that, you can still look at the imposing monastery church in the village.

    The Berghaus Kandelhof is no longer open on a regular basis. The large hotel / restaurant is being demolished and currently there is a small kiosk there. I can not say how long he will be open this season.
    Otherwise, there is the Fensterliwirt in fine weather. This is about 700m from the pass - just follow signs
    The new mountain house will probably be completed in 2021
