The Katzenbuckel (626 metres) is an extinct volcano and the highest elevation of the Odenwald. The mountain is located eastwards of Eberbach, near the village of Waldbrunn. At the top of the Katzenbuckel is a 18 m high look-out, built by sandstone. If the weather is good, you can see the Donnersberg (83km) and the surrounding secondary mountain (Taunus). When the view is very good, you can see theoretical the Kreuzberg (120km) in the Rhön.
