From here you have nice views on the snow covered peaks of the alps and the hilly landscape of Hegau. You wander leisurely over meadows and forests to Engen where you can stroll through the nice old town.

Engen in between – surrounded by the ancient, long extinct volcanic cones of the Hegau, the bordering Lake Constance and the majestic Alps. The seven Hegauberge mountains Hohentwiel, Hohenstoffeln, Hohenkrähen, Mägdeberg, Hohenhewen, Neuhewen and the Höwenegg are lined up next to each other.
In the 845 m high mountain you still find the remains of the ruin Hohenhewen. From the observation deck you can marvel the Hegau and on clear days even Lake Constance and the Alps. On an open field you hike over the summit, past the ruin Mägdeberg to Singen with its numerous cultural monuments.
The last walk leads past the old mansion “Friedinger Schlössle” past Steisslingen to the ruin Homberg, fromwhere you have wonderful views over the Untersee with the isle Reichenau and the Peninsula Mettnau of Radolfzell .
