The mountain is over 650 meters high and offers amazing views over the black forest and surrounding countryside from the summit. You can reach the top by walking or take the funicular (Merkurbergbahn) which is easier. You can also take the funicular on the way up and walk-down to enjoy the views from the trails.
At the top is an observation and communications tower with a modern radio mast, walking paths, a play area, a restaurant and large lawns. Hiking trails lead down to various attractions at the bottom and offer panoramic views.
It can be pretty windy at the top which makes it ideal for para gliding. Of course it can be pretty cold as well (some trees were displaying fall colors in June). So make sure you are appropriately dressed.
Although slightly off the beaten path, the mountain offers excellent views and is definitely not to be missed.
