    The Bildstein is one of the best panoramic mountains in the Black Forest. From its rocky summit you have an incomparable panorama, because from no other summit you can admire the Schluchsee in its entire size.

    The Bildsteinfelsen can be hiked from almost all directions. The paths and paths are different in length, some are quite comfortable, others are sweaty. You can reach the vantage point of Altglashütten and the Windgfällweiher, Raitenbucher Höhe, Fischbach, the Kohlplatz, Schluchsee, the Stutz woods, or Aha and the steep serpentine path. The blue rhombus of the Schwarzwaldvereinweg from Lenzkirch to the Feldberg leads over the picture stone.

    The actual, more than 70 meters high rock slope, which is getting steeper and upwards and have blown from the wind and weather over millennia any humus layer and washed down, stands out in the last few meters from the spruce, fir and beech mixed forest. The picture stone is 1138 meters high and drops vertically to the east. The vantage point itself is finally climbed to two dozen concrete steps that have been adapted to the weathered and mossy rock. From several benches you can now enjoy the panoramic view - an already unique panorama. Nowhere else can you find the Schluchsee so magnificent in almost its entire length from Seebrugg to Aha. If the conditions are right you can even see the Alpine panorama in the distance.

    The Bildstein summit is just a short detour away on the hiking trail "Schluchseer Jägersteig", quite easy to climb and still offers a magnificent view of and over the Schluchsee - it is definitely worth it!

    Great view over the Schluchsee and all the way to Feldberg. But most of all I found the sunbed below the picture stone

    There is no sheltered place up here, so if it should be cold and windy, take a thick jacket!

    Phenomenal view of the Schluchsee. On the far right you can see the Feldberg. An absolute must if you are in the area.

    Great view of Schluchsee and with good views of the Alps. Nice place to rest and stay. Not as crowded as the summit.

    The view worth the detour from the hiking trail. Three benches invite you to rest.

    Really great view, but unfortunately also very popular. You should either go there very early or late in the evening. Then not so much going on.

    The picture stone is located on the pleasure trail "Jägersteig". From the summit you have almost a perfect panoramic view of the Schluchsee. Even a small Vesper break is nothing in the way, benches available, ascent over a few steps, no great difficulty.

    Nice view from up here over the Schluchsee and over to the Feldberg. The sun loungers a little below the picture stone invite you to linger longer.

    This fantastic viewpoint is like a gift, especially when the view of the Alps becomes clear in the middle of summer. There is a nice table with a bench, barbecue and relaxation lounger ... we took various rubbish with us from people who still didn't understand how valuable unspoiled nature is - too bad.
