Stage description

N.B.: We don't have an English description of the stage just yet. We'll give you the German version for now until the English version is ready.

An feuchten Herbsttagen kann der Untergrund nass und rutschig und die Verwendung von Stöcken empfehlenswert sein.

Lehrreich bezüglich Glasbläserei (Glashütten) und Römer (Limes). Sportlich. Nach Renovierung des Feldberghauses dann wieder mit guter Gastronomie auf der Spitze. 
Auch das Ziel ist schön und spannend mit der Gaststätte und der International School.

Großer Feldberg

The European long-distance paths E1 and E3 meet on the 879m high Großer Feldberg. On the summit there is, among other things, a 40m high observation tower, a transmission mast of the Hessischer Rundfunk and gastronomic facilities. There is also a bus stop for bus line 57 ((Bad Homburg -) Oberursel-Hohemark - Oberreifenberg - Großer Feldberg - Königstein), which can be used to reach public transport stations.
