In the summer months many bikers often meet on the summit at weekends to chit-chat which results in a considerable number of motorbikes in the car park. Likewise, keen cyclists also ride up the Köterberg. The road between the village of Köterberg and the summit has a maximum gradient of 14 %. Radio hams use the peak because of it is an excellent site for transmission and reception. In the Köterberghaus is a restaurant.

The telecommunication tower (a ‘standard’ tower; 100 m) on the summit of the Köterberg was built in 1971 by the Deutsche Bundespost and handles wireless telephone traffic. In the German Main Triangulation Network (Deutsches Hauptdreiecksnetz or DHDN) the Köterberg is a major triangulation station with the name Lügde, Köterberg. The area of the summit is only wooded to the north which is why the hill is easy to recognise from afar and offers good views (see below).
