    Great view. Best to go early in the morning. Highly visited on weekends. Here is a tour of me where I am also on the Carolafelsen and the beautiful view can be seen:

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

    It helps if it is not foggy and not windy ;-)

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

    This is my favorite rock now. 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.
    The Carolafelsen can be reached in many ways. The direct ones are the Wild Hell or the Holy Stairs.

    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.

    With the best view of the Schrammsteine ​​and the falkenstein. Should definitely be included on a tour if it fits the way.
