Tips

  • Matzel

    From the north you can reach the plateau of Pfaffenstein the fastest way over the bottleneck. The path consists of about 600 unevenly high steps and is so narrow in its upper section that no two people can find space next to each other. Also, the 1897 developed path towards the end is so steep that the climb must be made on permanently installed iron ladders. You pass through a horizontal, quite narrow rock hole - just a needle eye.

    In the west, however, the so-called "comfortable way" leads upwards.

    With a heavy backpack or a child on your back, it gets adventurous. Otherwise, this is really a nice tour.

    Exciting ascent with a lot of variety and z. B. For children well feasible and little boring.

    For hikers with dogs, this climb through the end of the ladder and the narrow passage is not recommended.

    The bottleneck is on the path. The climb is very steep and is characterized by many steps, a few ladders and a few narrow points (such as the bottleneck). This requires good fitness and sure-footedness. But the ascent is fun!

    Great descent, but also usable as an ascent. Not recommended for dogs.

    You should bring some basic fitness here, the ascent is crisp.

    The more difficult climb leads through the eye of the needle. A certain basic level of fitness should be present.

    The name does justice to the rock column. :) It feels like being in a bottleneck.

    The stairs, rock bridges and ladders are always something special, as well as the bottleneck. It's getting damn tight ...

    For the first time in the Elbe Sandstone Mountains and overwhelmed by the unspoilt nature. Absolute natural spectacle.

    The ascent through the bottleneck to Pfaffenstein I find the best and safest option. It's just fun to climb the stairs.
    Pure Adventure.

    A real highlight on the descent from Pfaffenstein. Please take off the backpack - because with a backpack you get stuck. :)

    Not suitable for hikers with animal attendance, as a (steep) metal ladder must be overcome - without that there is an alternative. The dog must therefore be able to be carried (and you should then also create the ladder with one hand). With us it worked - but our dog weighs only 8kg and knows it already;)

    Nice steep and narrow. Good for the body test

    Very narrow, steep and therefore somewhat more difficult path. Challenges fitness and is therefore not for everyone. But there is also the “comfortable way”, which is really called that way, up.

    Very nice the way there and therefore, but also very busy during the holidays.
    Also possible for people with 🐕!

    narrow, narrow, steep - one of the most beautiful passages in the Elbe Sandstone Mountains
