Information in brief


Kandel Mountain can be reached by road from Waldkirch or from St. Peter or Glottertal from the south. There is a large car park at the highest point of the road, and a 400m footpath leads to the summit from there.

The large Kandelfelsen rock just below is a popular area for climbers. The paraglider launch site is directly by the car park. For winter sports enthusiasts, there are three ski lifts and pistes of various levels of difficulty, the popular boarder park and cross-country skiing courses.
