The Schauinsland mountain and its weather
The weather on the Schauinsland mountain differs considerably to that in the Rheintal, and not just with
respect to lower temperatures due to the height difference. The average yearly precipitation amounts to
around 2000 l/ m², three times that of Freiburg. This can cause restrictions for the weather dependant
The Kachelmann-weather station at the Schauinsland mountain cable car station offers a reliable
4-days-wheather-forecast to assist with planning scooter trips. The scale used to indicate precipitation can
however seem confusing. 6 mm of precipitation equals 6 l/ m², and so the height of the blue bar on the
chart does not actually mean heavy rainfall.
The Schauinsland cable car also has a webcam which shows the view from the top station facing north
and current weather information. The uppermost part of the scooter track is in the foreground of the
image. This area is exposed to the wind and for reasons of safety often leads to the Schauinsland cable
car being closed during stormy westerly weather conditions.
