    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.

    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.
