Still waiting for the snow in the Black Forest, as seen here on the summit of Kandel Mountain near St. Peter on 1241 meters above sea level on 29 December 2015.
But certainly the snow is yet to come, for the winter has only just begun.
www.black-forest-travel.com wishes a happy new year 2016 !
The Kandel Mountain is one of the most eye-catching mountains in the Central Black Forest. It ist located about 25km north-east of Freiburg and 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.
