Good vantage point to the east (Gößweinstein, Pottenstein, Hohenmirsberg, etc.). Unfortunately, the view and the viewing angle are very limited. Here (as of July 2018) bushes must be cleared and trees felled.
Was back in August 2020, the area at Adlerstein was finally exposed again in 2019.

Ancient observation rock 531 m high - easy to climb with the help of an iron staircase since 1905 (which ruined the lucrative business of a farmer from nearby Engelhardsberg, who provided his ladder for a fee to the early tourists;)
The poor poets of the romance probably did not have the necessary change for ladders or other lifts and brought for the first time the climbing in the Franconian Switzerland, as Viktor von Scheffel handed down:To the dizzying eagle stone
I try to climb early,
look all around into the mountains
and let the sounds blare.
Early morning fog plays, wind-swept
roughly shaped around rocks,
o highlands, wild highlands,
o valleys green and woody.

The Adlerstein is a worthwhile excursion destination and starting point for many interesting hikes. Even a short excursion from the Adlerstein car park to the Quackenschloss is a worthwhile "stroll" on rocky paths at any time of the year; especially exciting for children!
