Ascent Trip Report

What a hell of a mess to make of a summit. Wooden observation tower in wood is at least easy on the eye but all of the ski, observatory and derelict paraphernalia make this one for the German state highpoint bagger only. not to be recommended for the aesthetic certainly..

I parked at the good nature centre and reached the summit in about 15 minutes up the marked path at the side of the ski piste, same route down. I was passing vaguely in the direction on a work trip and wanted a view with my lunch.
