The Buttenberg is a slope with extensive orchards in the municipality of Inzlingen in the district of Lörrach. In the upper area you can find pastures and semi-arid grasslands with rare and endangered plant species such as various orchid species. In the high area there are also remnants of dry forest with fringe communities in need of protection. Nature enthusiasts can observe many cave-breeding birds here, but also the now rare wryneck. The Buttenberg has been a nature reserve since 1999. From the edge of the forest you can enjoy a wonderful view towards Basel, the Rhine plain and the Swiss Jura.


Several beautiful circular walks start from the Inzlinger Kreuz hikers' car park. A board on site provides an overview.


There are several restaurants around Inzlingen. The restaurant Wasserschloss is particularly suitable for special occasions. The Buttenberghütte, an open barbecue hut on the edge of the forest on the Buttenberg, can be reserved for trips at the mayor's office in Inzlingen and can be reached from the Schlossstrasse via the Buttenbergweg.
