    When the weather is fine you have a wonderful view from up there. In addition, there is a refuge in which one can hide for emergencies.

    The hike to the Hohenstein takes us, in the sunshine and rain and gray shower, along the Blutbach to Baxmannbaude at the foot of the Hohenstein. After successful ascent we reach the Teufelskanzel (lookout point in the Weserbergland) and the Kammweg leads us to the viewing platform at the Hohenstein. At a height of 380 meters you have from here, in good weather, a great view of the Weserbergland between Hameln and Rinteln. The Hohenstein was worth a visit even for the ancient Teutons because they paid homage to their gods (especially the goddess Ostara) from here. The Hohenstein is also a popular climbing area for experienced climbers, because here you will find the deepest cliffs (40 meters) in the Weserbergland. After the descent, the path leads us to the blood stream to a memorial stone, where according to the legend, a farmhand was impaled by a wild sow. Along the way, in the spring, there is a carpet of Märzenbechern in many places.
    As a tip it should good footwear and a wind or rain jacket to be worn, the way is graveled, however, it is partly uneven. At the viewpoint Hohenstein there is always a strong wind blowing.

    Class overview of the area. Caution, it goes down steeply. Visited on my E1 hike.

    The green altar also called Teufelskanzel is a freestanding cliff on the Hohenstein.

    Beautiful vantage point in the Weser Valley to the Lippischne Bergland and Rintelner Forst. Concrete shelter. Many spring flowers at Hohenstein and Dachtelfeld in spring. Steep path to the pulp mill very slippery and only with sticks to commit.

    A real highlight in an area with rather rounded peaks and not steep cliffs. The valleys and mountains in the area are ideal for a leisurely full-day tour, for a simple up-and-down, the place is almost too good.

    From there it is not far to the Süntelturm. This is hosted. The opening hours should be researched on the Internet.

    Even with overcast weather a great view. Nice that you have created the pulpit on the rock there.
