    Only a few iron steps are waiting to be climbed. The Katzstein is 444 meters high, the Katzfels, from which a great view and a stone cat figure wait, is located at 474 meters altitude. Right next door there is a small covered picnic bench.
    Coming from the quiet Forststeig you quickly realize that you come back to civilization again pretty close.

    The Katzsteinfels can be climbed over a sloping iron ladder. With weathervane in cat form.

    Who is traveling in the area, should definitely climb to the Katzsteinfels and thus to the observation deck - a beautiful view is waiting!

    Great highlight on the tour - and for those who dare not up, there is a covered "rest area" with table and bench;)

    The small plateau on the Katzsteinfels can easily be reached via the ladder. Wonderful panorama.

    Great viewpoint. Here you can look into the distance, play "guessing stones" and recharge your batteries for the rest of the way.

    From the Waldbad Cunnersdorf (free parking), a wide forest path leads uphill in the direction of Katzenstein, Bielatal, Spitzstein ... From the main hiking path then a path with stairs in the direction of Katzenstein, Signal ... The path leads only along the rock, before you come to a metal staircase, the lead up to the signal. From there you go on the rock plateau in the direction of Katzenstein. The Katzenstein is probably one of the smallest views of Saxon Switzerland. From there there is a path into the valley which then crosses the path Bielatal, Mäuseborn (Cunnersdorf). It goes past the Mäuseborn until you reach the main path again Spitzstein Cunnersdorf. From there you can reach the Spitzstein in about 1km. To Spitzstein again lead a steep iron staircase up to the crag. From there you have again a wonderful view ...

    You can almost miss them while climbing the view if you concentrate too much on the ladder. Halfway up you should pause briefly and take a look to the right. ;-)

    Great view of the Zschirnstein. The Große Zschirnstein on the right is the largest mountain in Saxon Switzerland at almost 561 m.

    Beautiful idyllic paths away from the crowds. It smells of forest. To walk very well with children.

    I imagined the cat to be bigger, but the view was still nice. Easy to reach thanks to the good steel ladder :)

    The cat sits on her rock from morning to night and is happy about the many faces that come by every day .. meanwhile you have to queue up when the weather is nice to enjoy the view ..
