Owner description: This mountain located on the outskirts of Freiburg provides both fabulous views of the city and peaceful opportunities for hiking.

The walks are super, lovely wide paths that lead around the "mountain" and into the forest (not yet black forest, but a nice preview).
The panorama over Freiburg is nothing special, so don't go up hoping to have a wow effect.
It is a gentle climb, no need to take the cablecar, unless you have childrens who really really wanna take it!

Not only is the hike, either from the city or through the forest great, but hiking up the tower gives a fantastic view of Freiburg. On the way back to town there is a nice biergarten for a stop and a drink. On a clear day the view is fantastic, and not to be missed!

The distance from the city centre was not too far, but you will need to have a map to know where it is, as there are no signs in the city (or maybe I didn't notice it). It was a good walk to the tower and great to wake yourself up in the morning. The winding staircase was very long and both my friend and I got dizzy, not to mention the height (the tower is 30 meters tall).
It was worth the visit, but people who have a fear of heights will be better off not climbing the tower.

The view from the mountain was quite nice and it is really close to the city center, where all the other touristic spots are. However I went in a day where the place was alone and almost couldn't find the way up. There was only a small road sign signaling the way up. That was a bit annoying, but I guess that in a see of tourist this would not be a problem.

Not too far from Freiburg centre and a steady, uphill walk. Keep an eye open for the small signs. The views are incredible and worth all of the effort. There are many paths to take to return to the town but aim for the beer garden and enjoy a relaxing reward. Cheers!
There are many people enjoying the area so directions can be easily found.
