    The Kipphornaussicht is also one of the motives of the famous painter, Casper David Friedrich. Part of the well-developed and famous Malerweg, which served as a backdrop for some paintings by the painter, leads to the Kippfornaussicht. The view offers a great view of the Elbe Valley, which almost reminds us of one of the beautiful Norwegian fjords.

    Very good view towards Schmilka and Tchechien. Also very suitable as a rest stop.

    In contrast to the many overcrowded viewpoints in Saxon Switzerland, you can still let your gaze wander over this fairytale mountain. In addition, the length of the Anmarschweges is still limited, so that even walkers can benefit.

    The climb is well worth it and is rewarded with a wonderful view and the Kipphornaussicht is an ideal place to pause.

    One of the most beautiful views in the Elbe Sandstone Mountains. With a great view of the Elbe and Zirkelstein.

    Absolutely visit the Kipphornaussicht during the descent / ascent to Winterberg! It's worth it!

    Where do you see a salamander in the wild? For me it was only the second time and in our Saxon homeland on the ascent to the Kipphornaussicht.

    From here you have a beautiful view of the Schrammsteine, Lilienstein, Kaiserkrone, Zirkelstein etc.

    Currently the only real view you have on the way to the Great Winterberg. The lookout tower has closed, like the restaurant.
    Otherwise, the way is sporty but through the forest with no great views.
    It really only worth the cliff horn view.
    I was a little disappointed afterwards. Sure, this one view is the Oberhammer.
    But had hoped for a great prospect in the economy.
