    The Zirkelstein is wonderfully exposed - one of the most beautiful views in Saxon Switzerland. All around you can see the large mountains of Bohemian Switzerland, such as the Rabenstein and the Schneeberg. And striking silhouettes of the Saxon rocks, such as Greater and Lesser Zschirnstein, Pfaffenstein, Lilienstein, Schrammsteine, Winterberg and of course - very close - the imperial crown.

    You can combine the Zirkelstein and the Kaiserkrone wonderfully as a half-day tour. Since the route is manageable and the ascent is not too strenuous, the hike is ideal as a family trip (also for smaller children, but without a stroller!).

    The ascent is manageable and gave our children (4 + 9) a lot of fun.

    The ascent to Zirkelstein is worth his view. In great weather, we could look far into the Bohemian Switzerland and to the Lilienstein and the Schrammsteine ​​are great to see.

    This view is worth a climb anyway. The paths and staircases are pretty well developed. In wet weather and snow you have to be a little careful, because the stairs are made of metal (danger of slipping). But always feasible!

    Steep climb with many stairs. As for a great all-round view when man arrives at the top.

    The Zirkelstein is the smallest table mountain in Saxon Switzerland and has a very distinctive shape.
