The «Kaiserstuhlpfad»

Amazing views and enchanting nature

On this hike across the mountain ranges of the Kaiserstuhl, discover the peculiarities of the fauna and flora of the region and enjoy views as far as the Vosges and the Alps while climbing several observation towers!

Especially in May and June when the orchids are in bloom or in golden September when the grapes are harvested, the Kaiserstuhl shows itself in its very special splendour.
On the way you will pass several spectacular vantage points with all-round views, be it the tower of the Katharinenkapelle, the Neunlindenturm made of natural stone or the modern Eichelspitzturm.
The path goes through several nature reserves with geographical features such as the Hohlgassen from Loess, in which the famous shimmering bee-eaters also live.

We recommend doing this hike in spring, early summer and autumn, because of the high temperatures in the Kaiserstuhl.

Length: 21 km, 608 meters in altitude, duration about 6.5 hours
Difficulty level:medium – sturdy shoes required and not suitable for prams
There are several places to stop for refreshments(e.g. on the way to the wine tasting in the state winery, to strengthen yourself with a sausage at the kiosk at the Katharinenkapelle or at the destination in Ihringen)

Getting there:

With the Breisgau-S-Bahn you can reach Endingen from Freiburg in 40 minutes.
Since the hike is a long-distance tour and not a circular tour, we only recommend arriving by car to a limited extent. The train station in Ihringen can be reached by car in approx. 30 minutes from Freibug, from there you can take the S-Bahn to Endingen (journey time approx. 30 minutes) so when you reach your destination in Ihringen you can get in the car and drive back.

  • The ingredients originate from suppliers within a maximum radius of 130km from Freiburg
  • In terms of content, every restaurateur is free in his creative design and offers dishes that suit his own house and kitchen
  • All dishes that are part of the menu are marked with the Freiburg logo on the menu
  • The Freiburg menu is offered all year and changes at least 4 times a year to emphasize the regionality and seasonality
  • To enhance transparency, we are happy to inform you about the exact origin of the products
  • Regional drinks such as water, juices, beer, wine and spirits are offered to match the menu
