Tips

  • Sylvia

    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.

    On good days you can play football with the tourists in the cowshed. For 2 teams plus a reserve bench it is always enough and there are enough spectators ;-)

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

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

    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!

    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 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.

    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 😉.

    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 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".

    Very good from Kirnitzschtal from developed excursion rocks. Therefore, well done and with restaurant of course, twice as attractive. Nice tour with children in every season.
