    I highly recommend the "Wild Hell". It is surprising that at the beginning of the gorge there is no indication of the difficulty. Without appropriate footwear nothing works here and for beginners it is already an experience. Incidentally, rather up than down!

    Nothing for unsportsmanlike. The up and down are sometimes very difficult. With the foot in the wrong place that can sometimes go wrong. Be sure to prepare well and bring enough time. For children and the elderly we can not recommend this. It would also be good if you umchten to hedge a harness. Good physical condition is mandatory here. Many ladders and many steps in the 90 degree angle. In the colder months you have to fight with icing. Caution is the highest bid here.

    The view is of course outstanding.

    Beautiful, wildly romantic gorge with difficult passages. Only for sure-footed! For children only partially recommended.

    Difficult hiking route with climbing sections
    A real challenge, both up and down, but exciting, varied and fun.

    Today I am both up and down with my seven year old and my eleven year old. No problem. The weather was dry and sunny. Before we had completed the Henschel staircase (with security). After that it was really "entertaining".

    The Wild Hell is a very beautiful gorge that lives up to its name. Unfortunately we could not do the difficult part with the dogs. Since there were ladders and abseil points. Alternatively, we had to avoid a neighboring gorge.

    It's better to go from the bottom up.

    A real highlight.
    But very difficult therefore not recommended for children. Partly slippery and very steep.

    Wild and romantic, it's fun!
    If you are a little sporty and hard-wearing, anyone can go up the stairs. The tour is recommended to go from bottom to top. Is well secured with clips and handles. Sturdy shoes are a prerequisite. Slippery on rainy days.

    You should be good on foot and have no fear of heights. A short way goes over iron braces.

    Beautiful route. However, the wild hell was frozen. Over frozen rocks with water is not recommended without suitable equipment.
    We then had to take another route.
    The rest can be mastered even in the deepest winter. (With us minus 10 to minus 4 degrees)

    Wild hell section has in itself. Ladders and brackets are included. Some courage and caution are required. However, it can be done.

    Great climb to the Schrammsteinen (marked as "difficult", but as a healthy person easily feasible). We are up with dog, the mostly everything alone (ie stairs, stairs and the like) could. There is only one key point where the dog must either be big enough to make a jump or small enough to carry it ... for humans there is a small metal ladder (no stairs!).

    The Wild Hell you just have to "take". Best from top to bottom.

    A fast, steep path to the Carolafelsen from bottom to top.
    Only to be enjoyed from top to bottom with good footwear and caution.
