    Today I took another approach: Drive up the steep road from Ippingen village to the borderline of the forest. This takes you a little higher than the car park you mentioned. The summit position is wrong in the SOTA database. Check Google Earth and you will find that the activation zone (896m and above) is huge and includes several nice spots.

    73, Markus
