Biking Trail
The Kandel is a mountain, 1,241.4 metres high, in the Black Forest in the south of Baden-Württemberg, Germany.GeographyThe Kandel is located 25 km northeast of Freiburg in the Breisgau and has a height of 1,241 m (4,072 ft).The Kandel belongs to the Central Black Forest gneiss region. The overall shape of the massif was tectonically formed: the Kandel block rises table-like in a northwesterly direction from the plateau around Sankt Peter. It is surrounded by faults, some of which form clear steps in the terrain; for example the Rhine Plain lies more than 1,000 metres below the Kandel and the summits on the other side of the Elz valley are 500-600 metres lower. The ongoing uplifting of the Kandel block from the Rhine Plain (1-2 mm/year) sometimes manifests itself in earth tremors.The Kandel massif is cut by deep radial valleys into mountain ridges, some rounded and some rocky. The steep mountainsides reach heights of 600 metres in the southwest (Glotter valley), 650 metres in the northwest (Elz valley) and a good 700 metres in the northeast (valley of the Wild Gutach). Only in the southeast does the mountain descend more gradually towards Sankt Peter by about 500 metres and to the ledge over the Zweribach waterfalls by a good 200 metres. The extensive grasslands of the southern slopes often exhibit clear thermals and are influenced by heavy thunderstorm weather patterns of the Breisgau that often arise here.

  • Great location, beautiful ballads to make snow with children or dogs, there are places to eat

  • We ran the Kandel trail, which is touted and signposted on the parking lot. Care: right at the beginning he runs right rigid straight ahead (we ran towards the toboggan run, but in the other direction, only towards the end of tour in the Gummenhofhütte to go up). It has super views at the shelter "Thomas hut".

  • We were Crown Jewel in Waldkirch for a weekend in the charming design hotel and during the day it has beat us in this Winterwonderland with fantastic sunshine. Great - almost alpine prospects - and snow surely again sexy. Refreshment facilities are available along the route. Think you should come in winter on snow appropriate clothing and a certain level of fitness is also required ;-)
