    The Zacken is a bizarre rock formation that is often used by climbers as a training ground. From the Großer Zacken you can enjoy a beautiful view of the Emsbachtal in the Idsteiner valley and over to the glass head.

    In any case, you should allow a little time for the view on the lümmelfelsen;)

    If you stand in front of it, you immediately know why this rock formation bears the name "Great Spike". He has alpine character in the middle of the Taunus.
    Also used as a training ground by mountain climbers or those who want to become one.

    In every weather a very beautiful and partly mystical place. Impressive rock formation.

    Really a big jag:
    Even the ascent on the small path through the forest is a - quite steep - experience and gives the feeling: Done, up! It's just not true depending on the further route planning ... there is still something going on!

    When climbing a head for heights is an advantage - danger of falling.
    Even if you are not afraid of heights a nice outing destination, you do not have to go to the very edge.
    Nice view to Oberems.

    There is a small steep path around the Peaks, which requires absolute surefootedness in autumn, when wet and with lots of foliage.

    A group of several striking rocks that rise on the slope. Paths between the individual rock formations are not always easy to see and also very steep (danger of slipping!).

    Very nice rocks and a fantastic view. There is a steep little path between the rocks, very nice, but be careful of slipping!

    An impressive rock formation, especially due to the exposed location.
