Tips

  • Biene

    The whole ridge from the Bastei over the Zankelstein further east is absolutely worth a trip. You can actually only get to the benches with a bit of agility. It's very nice up there in autumn too.

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

  • Great viewpoint! But a little scrambling and absolute surefootedness are required if you want to get to the top of the rocks 😉.

  • 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.

  • nice view. But very busy on a Sunday so it is better to go on another day. Especially if you want to go straight to the Zankelstein.

  • A summit worth seeing that requires a high degree of surefootedness, especially in the autumn months

  • To get to the rock you have to climb a bit and you should be free from giddiness. You will be rewarded with a wonderful view of the valley.
