    Very nice place with benches to rest, take a breath and enjoy the view. The view is worth the climb.

    Beautiful climbing rock above Pommelsbrunn. The lookout point of the Bastei is 100 meters next to it. In good weather you can see as far as Nuremberg.

    From the bastion you have a wonderful view of the Pegnitz Valley, the needles of the Zankelstein are worth seeing.
