Around Bonn there are 70 peaks with 100 or more meters of mountain prominence. I identified them within a 80-km-radius around the place where I live. I checked detailed topographic maps and marked all suitable peaks in a map, together with their individual key saddle (= „prominenzrelevante Scharte“) and connecting watersheds. Red labels mark elevations of more than 150 meters of prominence, green labels the smaller ones.
These are the top 10 prominence peaks in the here described area of the Rhineland:
|#||Peak||Elevation (m)||Prominence (m)||District|
|1||Hohe Acht||747 m||528 m||AW / MYK|
|2||Nordhelle||663 m||265 m||MK|
|3||Alarmstange||545 m||246 m||WW|
|4||Kinheimer Berg||421 m||229 m||WIL|
|5||Fuchskaute||657 m||227 m||WW|
|6||Schwarzer Mann||697 m||215 m||BIT|
|7||Gr. Oelberg||460 m||205 m||SU|
|8||Asberg||441 m||199 m||NR|
|9||Hoher Wald||656 m||195 m||SI / OE|
|10||Hochkessel||420 m||168 m||COC|
Computation of the mountain score of all these Rhineland peaks is work still to be done.
