View from the Belchen (little Ball), the second highest mountain in the Black Forest (1414m), towards France. You can see the Vogues in the Background. The two
mountain ranges used to be linked a loong time ago. The Rhine Valley between them potentially is an earthquake zone.
There is a webcam under Schauinsland.com where I can always check out the weather up there. The mountain has the longest cableway in Germany with cute little gondolas.
The Belchen in September 2002
The long foothills of the 1284m high Schauinsland (look- into-the-country) reach right into the city and there you can find some beautiful trails.
View from the Belchen towards the Alps in the south-west. Click on the picture to see them. (I just enhanced the contrast, nothing else)
