The Harmersbach is a tributary of the Kinzig in the Central Black Forest, which flows into the Kinzig at Biberach (Baden). The Brandenkopf mountain (931 m) offers a marvellous view of the surrounding Black Forest, Harmersbach valley, Kinzig valley, Gutach valley, especially from the Brandenkopf Tower. The Feldberg mountain can also be seen if the visibility is good. The tower can be reached by car or motorcycle, but it is also a popular destination for hikers, together with the neighbouring Wanderheim restaurant.
