    One of the most beautiful stones in the Saxon. Switzerland! If you do not want to climb up the many steps at the front, just walk the gently rising path from the back onto the stone and enter the cozy mountain restaurant at the end of the ridge trail or the summit tour. The steps then lead you down again quickly.

    The Rauenstein offers great views, from the direction of Wehlen, the climb is very comfortable, the descent can then be made on the many steps towards Weißig. So climbing is also possible with children, however, should always be paid attention, as there are many unsecured places, such as. a sandy cave with an open end to the abyss, which will reward everyone with unforgettable views. As a destination then lures the restaurant on the Rauenstein.

    The Rauenstein is a great destination for hikers with less time or those who like to walk at a good pace. The hike from Wehlen over the Rauensteinweg to Rathen can also be mastered in slow pace in less than 2 hours. Nevertheless, the Rauensteinweg and the Rauenstein offer a lot of variety with deep glades, dense forests, rooted paths and great views of the Lilienstein and the Zirkelstein.

    The Rauenstein is a must in Saxon Switzerland ☺
    The Gradweg is not as brutal as on the Schrammsteinen but at least as beautiful + the built has a good Gastro and a very clean toilet 👍👍👍
