    Although the Hercules pillars are the flagship of some hiking maps in the area, most of them are off the beaten track to reach the bizarre rock towers.
    Fortunately for Forststeigwanderer they are right on the roadside.

    If you are looking for the rock that is on the hiking map on the front, it is just right at the herkulessäule.

    Otherwise, it should be mentioned that around the Herkulessäulen it is not overcrowded touristy.

    The name of the columns derives from the pillars of Heracles. A variety of climbing routes make the climber's heart beat faster.

    The last highlight is the Herkulessäulen with the subsequent descent.
    The prehistoric panorama, what you get through the upstanding columns is very beautiful, in addition to the stone stunt through the pillared gorge in Bielatal then forms a great conclusion.

    Highlight in Bielatal - awesome climbing possibilities but also very suitable for hikers with dogs. When descent direction pulpit view - Attention a short ladder a bit tricky for dogs - my 2 wanted to be worn shortly :-) but is feasible with about 28kg dogs! remaining track very good for dog & owner

    The area around the Hercules columns are also a hotspot for climbers. It is fascinating to watch them climb dizzying heights.
