The Tower Climbs got its name right. Although we expect some height meter, but again and again rewarded with a magnificent view of the surrounding mountains and valleys in the southern Black Forest. When visibility is clear or the weather is inversed, where the air is clearer and warmer than at the bottom, the view opens up to the Alps. In addition to the many great lookout points we expect more scenic features, because we pass the Gisibodenalm on the way and hike from there via a suckler cow pasture to the Präger soils. The Tower Climbs offers a special variety of nature experiences for every hiker. Highlights on the tour are the views from the two lookout towers on the Hasenhorn and Hochkopf, but the view from the treeless summit plateau of the Blößlings rewards us with a fantastic Black Forest panorama.

 

In addition to the scenic features waiting for us in the mountain inns Hasenhorn, Gisiboden, Präger Böden and in the Hochkopfhaus culinary specialties. Here we have the opportunity to stop on the hike and to strengthen ourselves.

 

"Open your eyes" on the high black forest premium hiking trails. Because on every way there is a stamp point in the form of a cuckoo clock. These offer the opportunity to document the hikes by stamp in the Hochschwarzwälder Wanderpass. Further information can be found at

Turn-by-turn directions

We start the Turmsteige trails at the top station of the Hasenhorn chairlift. From there we hike to the Hasenhorn observation tower and the mountain pasture known as “Gisibodenalm”. From the Gisiboden mountain restaurant the trail leads us across a grazing pasture towards the Brenntkopf peak, and we continue hiking towards the area known as “Präger Böden”. Here we briefly follow a little road through the upper Prägtal valley before the signpost for the Turmsteige leads us to the left across the Prägbach stream bridge. When mother cows and calves are grazing on the pasture, we follow the signposts marked “Turmsteige Umleitung” (detour) towards the cross “Bernauer Kreuz”, and then hike down on the right into the upper Prägtal valley. There we will reach the regular trail guidance again from the detour and start the steep ascent towards Hofeck. From here it is another three kilometres to the hamlet Wacht between Bernau and Präg. We hike uphill to the summit of the Blößling (red route): 336 metres in altitude now have to be overcome on a distance of 2.4 km. A forest trail leads up in many switchbacks up to the Blößling summit. The Turmsteige trails now continue to follow the Black Forest Westweg trail down to the panoramic Blößling saddle and by hiking across the Präger Eck we get to the vantage points at “Hoher Zinken”, “Ledertschobenstein” and “Hochkopf”, where we have the opportunity to climb up the observation tower. On the Hochkopf Panorama Trail we proceed towards the mountain saddle Weißenbachsattel and Hochkopfhaus. From there we can take the bus back to Todtnau.
