Cover picture Kahler Asten

You can experience a picture-book panoramic view from the Kahler Asten, the second highest mountain in NRW. From the 841-metre-high mountain, the expanse of the Sauerland region reveals itself in every direction as a beautiful view into the distance - on a clear day even up to 100 kilometres away.

In addition to the fabulous view, you will discover a beautiful heath landscape here, which you can explore on meandering footpaths . More precisely, the heath landscape is a dwarf shrub heath on which hardly any trees grow. Regular sheep grazing ensures that tree seedlings are browsed by the sheep. This is also supported here by manual maintenance of the heath.
