    Be sure to visit if there is a possibility. For people who are less well on foot, the approach from the plateau (Engelhardsberg) is recommended, all others should ascend from the valley (for example Muggendorf).

    This is a duplicate of "Lookout from Quakenschloss" komoot.de/highlight/169287.

    Why are you doing such a thing beyelec, you have created a duplicate right next to the original? Are you a cheap point collector?

    Beautiful forest area. Quackenschloss is great. Ideal for a picnic.

    Blocked with stones, slippery when wet. Surefootedness required. Is it worth it to go up here. Above then the great view. Take the camera !!!

    You do not see a cave cave every day, and this one with your 25m and more is fascinating!

    Be sure to visit if there is a possibility. For people who are less well on foot is recommended the approach from the plateau (Engelhardsberg) ago, all others should ascend necessarily from the valley (for example Muggendorf).

    I find it superfluous, for the 60 m long trail and 15 hm up on the rocks to create a HL (section). It goes up like countless other rocks in the Franconian area, I do not see "S2" either. in the upper third you have to climb a bit like a staircase
    This sight has been ruined enough by a dozen duplicates by HL anyway.
