  • You can climb up the side of the rock. Fitness required. A great view from the top. A lovely walking path goes around the backside of the rock and there you discover some caves. Very interesting...

  • I would not really recommend anybody to go and see the "rock" and then drive away again, but as an element on a walking tour around Bad Grund it is really a"treat". The walking is however 80%. Bad...

  • The 50 m limestone crag has a slightly silly looking model bird perched on top – apparently a tribute to some old Kaiser. No climbing is allowed, but it’s possible to walk steeply up a flight of steps cut into the rock, to a point below the upper pinnacle. After the dramatic ascent the summit is a bit of an anticlimax, as you top out at a metal fence covered in rusty padlocks, with a view of the bird’s bottom on one side, and a partially obscured view of the valley on the other.
  • Beautiful, different hiking trails. Based on the flowering times of plants and trees. It's fun, beautiful view and finally marvel at the eagle. The lattice railing there is apparently popular with couple locks 😄 if you are careful when hiking, you can still find beautiful minerals.
