    The Barbarine is one of the most famous features of Saxon Switzerland. Her fairy-tale character inspired already in the 19th century storytellers and mountaineers to make her part of the history of the region. According to a legend, the Barbarine is said to be a petrified virgin petrified by her mother out of disobedience and now dwelling there as a memorial to disobedient children. To a part of their fame also contributes to the mountaineering first ascent of the sandstone needle in 1905.

    It is an adventurous worthwhile walk to this rock. It goes over ladders and stairs and then through narrow crevices. As a reward then the view of this lonely rock.

    Famous freestanding "rock needle" in Saxon Switzerland. In the past also popular climbing rocks, but for the protection of the babarine since 1975 climbing on the needle is forbidden.

    On the way to the Malerweg, stage 7. The arduous way over stairs and ladders as well as through narrow rock crevices is worthwhile to get a look at this lonely rock.

    A small path leads to the lookout point on the Barbarine. Beautiful and with an equally great view. In front of the path you can sit on the stones and enjoy the sun in good weather. I loved it up there and could have stayed forever.

    The Barbarine is special. I like Pfaffendorf and its surroundings best in Saxon Switzerland.
