Tips

  • Uwe

    Great sandstone formation in the Zittau Mountains. It is one of the most difficult climbing rocks in the mountains. If you are lucky enough to see mountaineers trying to conquer the rock, you should take the time to watch them. It is very interesting what kind of athletic performance is necessary.
