Ascent of Wasserkuppe on 2020-07-23
|Date:||Thursday, July 23, 2020|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||3117 ft / 950 m|
Ascent Trip ReportThis is an extremely popular location, and the summit area has a glider airport, museum, cafes etc etc, as well as 5 paid carparks. There is one free carpark about 1.5km downhill from the summit (others cost 2 euros/hour). You can make a nice loop in the area, and on much quieter paths if you head west from the summit. I made a good 10km loop back to the carpark, with some defend descents and climbs on the way. Nice views in the high point of Hessen!
