Hiking Highlight (Segment)
This is really only a via ferrata and should only be done by experienced hikers and climbing enthusiasts. Via ferrata set with strap and helmet are actually to create. And please think of the right equipment especially on the right footwear. Flip-flops or sneakers are out of place here. To climb you need both hands and not the beer bottle in your hand. Garbage is also taken please. It is a national park and the National Park Guard controls and is not afraid of punishment. And remember, please only commit in ascension.
Beautiful staircase with two parts that has been converted in recent years to a real via ferrata. The lower part consists mainly of tread braces that pull up on small walls and around corners. The upper part attracts with a classic large fireplace (rustic entrance gap), which runs in the upper part over rocky ridges.
Is needed grds. a via ferrata set as well as sturdy shoes, if necessary via ferrata or bicycle gloves for the ladders, brackets and steel cables.
It is probably the most exciting via ferrata in Saxon Switzerland. The view at the top is terrific. Without via ferrata set for adults possible. Always secure children! The twin stairs in the immediate vicinity you should immediately with (best before) commit. Who creates this, gets the Häntzschelstiege out!
Spectacular and varied.
The ascent or descent is without climbing harness or other equipment readily possible.
There are enough handles and steps processed in sandstone.
The panorama is definitely worth it.
In thunderstorms, rain or wet, I would advise against, as well as trip with small children.
The Häntzschelstiege offers an adventurous climbing experience for those who prefer not to face the mental challenge of securing knots and the athletic challenge of free climbing. If you feel insecure, take a climbing harness with you. Optionally you can bypass the Häntzschelstiege or climb only the first, slightly simpler, part. In the upper part of the adventure feeling is reinforced by narrow crevices again. Even when it was damp, the stairs felt rather sure-footed. Of course, attention is still needed.
A really nice climb. Experienced indoor or alpine climbers can certainly go this route without security from the technology. Basically, I would always recommend with backup, even if you always see people without security. The crevices are deep and narrow, slipping has fatal injury consequences and a mountain rescue there is extremely difficult. Especially children should be secured. The subsequent view is worthwhile.
Quite possible even without equipment to climb, but only advisable for people over 1.80, since the kicks sometimes have very long distances and there is at least one point in half, where you can not go far without help from the rope or legs. But the beautiful piece is always recommendable
