Sunset on the Kandel




Location: Kandel

The Kandel is the highest elevation (mountain) in the Middle Black Forest and the local mountain of the city of Waldkirch. The height is 1241 meters above sea level.

The Kandel offers extensive sports and leisure opportunities. It is made accessible by an extensive network of trails for hikers and mountain bikers, including part of the Schwarzwaldverein-Weg Oberkirch ?? Waldkirch ("Kandelweg"). The large Kandelfelsen is a popular area for climber and has several routes of varying degrees of difficulty. On the summit of the Kandel there are two launch ramps for hang gliders and paragliders. Two ski lifts and a cross-country ski run are available in winter.

In 2001 the third stage of the Germany tour led over this mountain, which was a tough test for some racing drivers, especially in the lower area behind the Altersbach. Udo Bölts was the first to reach the summit.

On December 5, 2004, an earthquake measuring 5,43 on the Richter scale occurred in the southern Baden region. The epicenter was about 12 km below the Kandel massif.
