    If you are looking for the rock that is on the hiking map on the front, you are in the right place 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 comes the stony stunt through the pillared gorge in the Bielatal which 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
