  • 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.
  • Nice but not worth a detour
