The German Hiking Institute has certified the Feldberg Climb with its 77 experience points with the "German Hiking Seal". So the Feldberg Climb is a trail with a very high experience value. Basis for the certification are the desires and habits of the hikers, as they are regularly surveyed by studies. For the first time, the German Hiking Seal has succeeded in demonstrating and implementing the diverse elements of the hiking experience in a guaranteed experience.

"Open your eyes" on the high black forest premium hiking trails. Because on every way there is a stamp point in the form of a cuckoo clock. These offer the opportunity to document the hikes by stamp in the Hochschwarzwälder Wanderpass. Further information can be found at https:

Turn-by-turn directions

The tour begins in the town of Feldberg, right behind the nature center [Haus der Natur] and starts with a challenging ascent to the Panorama Path. After mastering the first altitude meters, the reward on clear days is a breathtaking view of the Vosges Mountains to the west and the Swiss Alps to the south.

Continue hiking to the Bismarck monument to get to the mountain station (1450 m above sea level) and the Feldberg cable car line. Pass by the Feldberg tower and hike through the mountain saddle “Grüblesattel” to reach the Feldberg peak at 1493 m. Take the plunge and begin your descent to the hiking lodges St. Wilhelmer Hütte (or take the alternative route to the lodge Todtnauer Hütte), Zastler Hütte, and Baldenweger Hütte – all of which are refreshing stops along the way where you can rest and have a bite to eat, depending on how tired or hungry you are.

Now the actual rise begins − narrow paths, tiny bridges, and an entirely adventurous natural experience!

The path leads to a 300 year-old farm in idyllic surroundings, the Raimartihof, where you can enjoy local specialities in its cozy interior. After that, the hike takes you between the 300 m steep slopes of the Feldberg and the lakeshore of Feldsee towards Bannwald. The climb takes you back to the nature center via Karl-Egon-Weg.

Question from Stefan Engelhardt · October 04, 2021 · Community
Gibt es auf dieser Tour ausgesetzte Stellen ? Ich habe stark mit Höhenangst zu kämpfen und würde mich daher freuen wenn jemand hierzu eine Information hätte :) Viele Grüße Stefan

Hallo Stefan, ich kämpfe auch mit Höhenangst aber diese Tour, so finde ich, hat keine Stellen, bei welche man Höhenangst haben muss. Schau dir einfach den Film an, welche ich im Herbst 2019 gemacht habe.

Wir waren sehr positiv von diesem Weg überrascht: Tolle Blicke vom Gipfel, schöne schmale Pfade (vor allem im Mittelteil) und der wunderbare Feldsee zum Abschluss. Können wir guten Gewissens weiterempfehlen! :-)
