Wonderful view of the rock world, especially when you climb the ladder to heaven! The name Kuhstall has two possible causes: On the one hand, during the Thirty Years' War the population of the surrounding towns hid their cattle from marauding Swedish soldiers in the very wide rock gate. On the other hand, it is assumed that the inhabitants of the medieval castle, which had degenerated into a nest of robber barons, housed the cattle there that they looted during their raids.

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 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 😉.
