    High above Pottenstein at the panorama path Burg Pottenstein-Elbersberg perched the 2014 built observation tower Pottensteiner Himmelsleiter. At an altitude of 25.50 meters there is the observation cockpit, from which you have a breathtaking panoramic view of the Franconian Switzerland after climbing the 150 steps. With good visibility, you can even look into the Fichtelgebirge.

    Since May 23, 2017, a new panorama signage has been installed on the platform, thanks to which you know what you can see on the horizon.

    Open daily, closed in winter
