  • König Eckat I.

    Pleasant climb leads to a beautiful vantage point. Especially in good weather, but here is pretty much going on.

    The Ausichtsplateau of Kuhstall is achieved by climbing in a crevice, the so-called "ladder sky"

    A view as if you were in a deserted, unpopulated area. Especially in the evening a dream, when calm stops and you can be alone up here.
    (We were here on a Sunday evening in July at about 19 o'clock in the best weather and there was no one but us on the ground at the World Cup final on this day, it is rather not have been: no German participation ;-))

    The Hummelsleier is a narrow climb between the fields and leads towards the sky to a fantastic vantage point. The rose is very narrow. The larger trekking backpack must stay down. With day luggage it is not a problem.

    The Himmelsleiter, the view and simply the "total rock" are simply an experience!

    The cowshed is 11 m high and 17 m wide, the largest rock cave in Saxon Switzerland.
    Felsenhöhle KuhstallDas cave protected as a geological natural monument presents itself to the visitor as a giant rock gate, which leads 24 m far through the mountain.
    Robber knights lived in the 15th century in Wildenstein Castle. Her most sought-after prey was cattle. They hid their animals in a nearby cave with the significant name "Kuhstall".

    Interesting in any weather. Especially the sky ladder. When I'm in the vicinity there is always a trip to the cowshed.

    The cowshed is the second largest rock gate in the Elbe Sandstone Mountains after the Prebischtor. It is located on the Neuer Wildenstein, a 337 m high rock in the Upper Saxon Switzerland, which was dominated by Wildenstein Castle in the 15th century.Source:ächsische_Schweiz)

    The cowshed is a 11 m high, 17 m wide and 24 m deep rock gate. From the Lichtenhain waterfall you need about 30 minutes on foot to the Felsentor Kuhstall. Right next to it is the Himmelsleiter (stairs in the rock), which is definitely recommended 😉.

    The cowshed is well suited as a hiking destination for small children. Rest stop, retreat, adventure everything available

    A great tour with children, as you can rage here and the climb does not take too long. The fun for adults is also given, as here great views and great climbing moments wait.
