Possible Summer tour - HB0 / DL / OE / I

We might visit the HB0 / OE / DL / I region for a few days to activate these associations at end of June/ beginning of July.

We would appreciate some tips/resources on some nice & “family friendly” summits around the HB0 / DL / OE / I corner.

Thanks in advance

As for HB0 I think there is a very limited amount of family friendly summits available, all of the summits are above 2000m sealevel. You can have a look at SOTA MAPPING PROJECT … there i uploaded gps-tracks for three of the easier HB0-summits:

HB0/LI-004 Augstenberg 2359m (cablecar, then 3.5km to summit / 400m elevation gain)
HB0/LI-009 Schönberg 2104m (5km to summit / 600m elevation gain)
HB0/LI-011 Helwangspitz 2000m (3km to summit / 500m elevation gain)

If you need further information you can write a PM or e-mail. Also OE9HRV may be of help, he is often in HB0 activating different summits there.

I am activ in the area DM/NW. Her are a lot of summits. Some of them are easy to reach. Nice Citys to start are Winterberg or Sundern. I think familie friendly means hiking and not climbing.
In HB0 Austenberg is possible. On the way also easy is OE/VB-512 Pfänder.

Thanks for the suggestions. I meant summits you can hike and not climb or exposed ridges, summits. The ones you are suggesting seem ok in terms of distance / elevation gain. I will have a detailed look at them.

The WX will have the final word wether we visit or head down straight to EA5.
