    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!

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

    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.

    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.

    Am today with my seven-year and my eleven year both up and down. No problem. The weather was dry and sunny. Before we had completed the Henschel stairs (with backup). After that, this was really "entertaining".

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

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

    Wild and romantic, fun!
    If you are a bit sporty and hard-kicked, you can go down the stairs. Recommended is the tour from the bottom to the top to go. Is well secured with brackets and handles. Sturdy footwear is required. Slippery on rainy days.

    It's better to go from the bottom up.

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

    For me one of the most beautiful gorges. It should be noted: In heavy rain, even if it is just a short strong showers, this way quickly becomes a torrent and the mossy rocks turn into soft soap. In the descent, this path is quite arduous, because of the large step heights, it's r children with their short legs quickly borderline. Ascension is easier to handle. Adventurous and wildly romantic route and fortunately not yet provided with iron, ladders and stairs, as usual over all in the Saxon Switzerland.

    Beautiful route. However, the Wild Hell was frozen. About rock frozen with water is not recommended to anyone without appropriate equipment.
    We then had to take another route.
    The rest can be mastered even in the dead of winter. (With us minus 10 to minus 4 degrees)

    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!).

    This is a climb that even I, as not suitable for altitude could loosen. ;O)
    Sturdy footwear is mandatory here, otherwise the muddy spots and the wet ladders are not feasible.
    We have risen up here. Downhill does not make that much fun.

    Real nature with a small challenge to climb up with step irons and grips embedded in the rocks.,

    It's best not to visit on weekends and who has healthy knees may even venture on the descent through the wild hell.
