    A great vantage point, easy to reach and great views.

    This is my favorite rock from now on. The view from the Carolafelsen is gigantic. You have all the highlights at a glance. Pfaffensteine, Königstein, Lilienstein, Schrammsteine etc.
    Always ready for a photo opportunity.
    There are many ways to get to the Carolafelsen. The direct ones are the Wild Hell or the Holy Stairs.

    A really great tour.
    On the weekend but heavily visited. Sturdy shoes are advisable if it is a bit wet.

    Great view! Nice opportunity for a picnic. (If it's not a holiday, it's very crowded)

    Very rewarding and accessible viewpoint. Surefootedness can still help. The plateau offers plenty of space, even for the rest of larger groups. You have wonderful views towards the Nasser Grund and over to the Falkenstein. Can be combined well with a climb over the Häntzschelstiege and the descent through the wild hell. Highly frequented on weekends and holidays.
