    The perfect break. By the way, you can explore the cave with which Goethe also impressed Frau von Stein. It was probably carved into the rock as a guardhouse in the Middle Ages. Tear yourself up the steep stairs, it's worth it!

    The Hermannstein can be climbed in summer. By winter the stairs are closed. The cave, however, can always be visited.
