This promising tour starts in the picturesque village of St. Peter, which can be seen from afar by the two magnificent towers of the former monastery. A visit before or after the walk is an absolute must for those who are interested in culture!
The hike itself offers numerous, marvelous views over the Black Forest and the Rhine plain and finally leads to the sunny city of "Freiburg". Here the strenuous day can be rounded off wonderfully with a scoop of ice.
Access to the "Kandelhöhenweg" can be reached from "St. Peter-Zentrum" past "Gasthof Zum Kreuz" and up "Scheuergasse". At the first junction on the left you reach the "Sauwasen" via the "Wolfweg" - at the "Kandelhöhenweg" (marking: white K on a red rhombus). Here is a clear view of the "Kandel", the "Felbergmassiv" and down to "Glottertal". On a small paved road, past "Hornhof" and "Langeckhof", you reach a footpath halfway through a wooded area that extends to the gates of "Freiburg". With the "Conventwald" one crosses the natural "Bannwald" and reaches over the "Flaunser" the "Streckereck". From here it goes down to the lookout point "Martinsfelsen" with rest area and then to "Rosskopf", whose lookout tower allows a magnificent panoramic view in favorable weather. From the "Rosskopf" the tour leads steeply down the valley over the "Rosskopfhaldenweg" and at the "Kanonenplatz" lookout point to the "Schwabentor" - the final stage destination. (Return by public transport possible - with KONUS guest card for free!)
