The geographical highlight of the Taunus and one of the most striking mountain peaks in Germany: with a height of 881 meters, the Großer (big/large) Feldberg is just as visible from afar as the beautiful views it offers in good weather conditions. From the Frankfurt skyline and the Rhine-Main area to the mountains of the Odenwald. In the past, locals even claimed that they could see from the Feldberg all the way to Strasbourg on particularly clear days. Furthermore, the Feldberg has become a prominent landmark due to the tall broadcasting mast and the three towers, one of which can be climbed. The upper part of the Feldberg is woodless which makes it such a popular destination for excursions - for sunbathing or for playing on the Roman playground, which is part of the Limes Experience Trail. On the northern edge of the plateau on the summit, the legendary Brunhildisfelsen rock made of quartzite offers an easy-to-climb vantage point.
