Gracefully following these carefully designed pathways, you'll walk through lush forests that lead you to the top of the pre-alpine Adellegg ridge – a tall observation tower that stands at an impressive 28 meters. Adellegg, a large area of densely wooded mountains in Isny, is part of the northern foothills of the beautiful Allgäu Alps. Besides being a special natural area, Adellegg has a rich cultural history shaped by many years of human activity. While you explore the interesting Black Ridge Adventure Trail, you'll come across things like nail walls, pretty viewpoints, cozy picnic spots, and other enjoyable places that make your visit even better and more exciting

Enriching your exploration are 13 informational stations covering topics like natural history, forestry, alpine farming, tourism, birds, and nature conservation. Play and action zones highlight the extraordinary landscapes and history of Adelegg, while strategically placed benches offer resting points along the way. The grand reward for trail conquerors awaits at the observation tower.

The observation tower itself is a must-visit spectacle, offering unparalleled views of Lake Constance, the Nagelfluh rock formations, and the majestic Alpine chain. But the excitement isn't confined to the summit; the entire trail promises an unforgettable experience. Here, an array of activities awaits visitors of all ages. For the young ones, a playground equipped with hammocks, a seesaw, and a nest swing beckons. For the more daring youth, scaling the tower and testing their strength becomes a thrilling challenge.

Inside the tower, you'll discover refreshment establishments offering snacks and beverages (available May to October, on Sundays and holidays in fair weather). However, if you wish to bring your own provisions, a barbecue area awaits – don't forget to pack your favorite sausages! Picnic tables and benches provide the perfect setting for a leisurely meal in this serene environment
