    Although the mountain restaurant is closed during the winter season, it is still worth a visit. Not only because of the charming wooden construction of the restaurant itself, but also because of the lookout tower next to the restaurant.

    The tower of the restaurant reminds me of a fairytale tower. Did Rapunzel live there? The imagination knows no limits. The ascent is free (who wants to, but can still put something in the cash) and will reward me a very nice view.

    The exhibition is not very big but made with love 🙂
     and perfect for the hiker looking for information on the region every now and then 👍

    If you want to know more about the history of the Elbe Sandstone Bridge and the region, you are right here. Also a museum of mineralogy of the region

    In the meantime, only open until 5 pm and not a minute longer. Too bad that you are not flexible.

    Located directly on the tower. Nice staff and good price / performance ratio. WC is also available. The only restaurant within a radius of 2-3 km

    Nice little cafe / restaurant right on the tower at Pfaffenstein. Price / performance is typical of the region, so cheap and nice staff.
