The Belchen


According to Karl Baedeker's Black Forest Travel Guide, the Belchen is "the most beautiful mountain in the Black Forest, because of its majestic dome shape and the 360 degree view it offers, it is unsurpassed by any other summit" .

The famous travel writer wrote down these observations about the Belchen decades ago, but they have lost none of their relevance. It's isolated height is impressive. The panoramic mountain of the Black Forest rises about 1,000 meters above the Muenstertal and the Wiesental.

Surrounded by the tranquility of the Belchen nature reserve, the third-highest peak in Black Forest attracts nature lovers and those seeking rest and relaxation alike. In the heart of the southern Black Forest, the unique sub-alpine landscape of the Belchen offers a diverse flora and fauna. Here you will experience nature pure.

At 1414m, it is the fourth highest peak in the Black Forest, after Feldberg, Seebuck and the slightly higher Herzogenhorn. At the top of the Belchen, the municipal borders of Muenstertal, Schoenberg and Kleines Wiesental meet.

With its treeless hilltop, the mountain has a striking profile which seems almost symmetrical when viewed from the Upper Rhine Plain. Two more ridges in the adjacent highlands have the name Belchen (celtic: the shining one), including two within view which are particularly conspicuous when covered with snow; they, together with the Black Forest Blechen form the so-called Belchen triangle: in the west on the French side of the Upper Rhine valley in the Vosges ( F) the Alsation Belchen or Ballon d'Alsace, in the South on the south side of the High Rhine, the Swiss Belchen, the Belchenflue. Within sight are also in the Vosges in Alsace the Great and the Small Belchen, Grand and Petit Ballon, which, together with the above mentioned Belchen belong to the so-called Belchen system.

In the West, you will discover the low-lying Rhine Valley and France with Alsace and the Vosges. To the south, the view takes in the Swiss Jura. In the north and north-east the mountain ranges and countless summits of the Black Forest beckon. In the east, the ranges of the Black Forest meet Vorarlberg. In the south Wiesental lies at your feet. And the crowning glory on a clear day: The majestic backdrop of snow-capped peaks of the Alps. Several hundred kilometers wide, from the Bavarian Zugspitze to Mont Blanc in the French Alps.

The panoramic mountain in the Black Forest offers unique views.


Even before 1900 this unique mountain was captured on postcards. We have made available some of the most beautiful cards from that time for you.
