Highly recommended is the climb on the forest path, so you can work between the rocks on the summit and on the other hand visit the former ramparts. Once at the top, brave people can even climb the rock. Up here is a wonderful place for a rest and panoramic view.
If you now choose the slightly wider way direction Rothaarstieg down, you can enjoy on the way again SUPER views in the area! By the way, there is also a forest trail ... ;-)

Don't go to the information center. There they gamble you off stones only with admission for the visit! After all, there are other ways to get to the stones without paying anything. The gamble on hikers who just come by just as much as those who park there.

Four stone giants in the beech forest - these are the Bruchhauser stones. You are in front of approx. 400 million years of lava and earth folds have been created and are made of very hard prophyrs. They are up to 92 meters high. One of them, the Feldstein, is walkable. From there you have a very nice view. During excavations, they discovered an Iron Age fortification that may have connected the rocks.
The Bruchhauser stones are one of the most important geotopes in Germany and since 2017 NRW's first national natural monument.
You pay only at the "official" entrance to the rocks, at the information center. But you can also get on many other forest trails comfortably and without charge to the rocks.
