    The Augustus rock is also called Albrecht Dürer rock. It is made of limestone and is between 25 and 30 meters high.

    The Augustus rock is really very striking. You can climb through a cave passage.

    From the parking lot, follow the hiking trail up the steeply ascending road (Paradiesweg). After about 100 m turn left. The road ends after 150m and joins a hiking trail. Follow this another 150m, then keep left and follow the marking "Rotkreis". After 120m you reach the mountain side of the Albrecht Dürer rock. Shortly before, several paths lead to the left to the more rewarding side of the valley.
