    When the weather is nice you have a great view over the whole of Saxon Switzerland and it is not quite as crowded as the other hotspots.

    These stairs - the Holy stairs must have been committed; especially in the descent.

    Great view to enjoy. Good starting point to get on the Terassenweg or Reitsteg.

    The "holy stairs" from the herring ground to the upper terrace. Breathtaking in two ways.

    Quiet place with a beautiful view. If you don't want to take a break with the masses on the Carolafelsen, you may find a place here.

    After a steep ascent over iron ladders, you can see the buzzard rock and the Schmilka rock basin. Great view. But you should be free from giddiness.
