Germany: Kahler Asten

The Kahler Asten is an 841.9-metre-high mountain in the Rothaar range in the district of Hochsauerland, in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia. It is a popular destination, receiving more than 500,000 visitors annually. On the card you can see Astenturm (Asten tower). From the platform of the tower, which is 862 m above sea level (NN), there is a superb all-round view over the Rothaargebirge and other parts of the Sauerland. The Kahler Asten and the surrounding area, with its sister mountains, out to about 40 kilometres is one of the most well-known winter sport regions in the German Central Uplands due to its good snow conditions.
