    The Nonnenfelsen are a unique rock formation above the spa town of Jonsdorf. Various paths lead up and up next to the bizarre sandstone pinnacles you can expect an incomparable view of the surrounding mountains.

    The Nonnenfelsen is a must for every visitor to the Zittau Mountains. Not only because of its special form (the nuns) and the view of Jonsdorf in the restaurant you will be served friendly and the food and beer taste.

    Photo: View to the Nonnenfelsen.
    Again and again a nice entertaining destination in the Zittau Mountains.
    Ideal for the family trip.
    Well-developed, but pay parking in the immediate vicinity.
    Below the Nonnenfelsen (where the picture was taken) there is a restaurant / snack / ice cream and a gondola, where you can ride a boat / pedalboat and feed swans / ducks.

    The gypsy houses (the passage through the rocks after the mountain inn) was created by volcanic eruptions.

    Nice view of Jonsdorf and the millstone quarries.
    You can watch the climbers as they conquer the rock.
    This part of the way we liked best.

    The nun's rock is quite easy to climb, at least to the inn from there it goes up stairs on, but the view is worth it! In the restaurant one can also pick up a stamp for the Zittau mountain pass. The Bergpass can either be picked up at the Zittauer Touristinfo or printed on the Internet:

    Also suitable for short trips, unfortunately, everything is closed in the winter time. A little condition is also necessary.

    On this tour we climb the Nonnenfelsen from Hohlsteinweg. The path is one of the three approaches to the Nonnenfelsen. The descent to Jonsdorf by the Zigeunerstuben is highly recommended. This tour is easy and interesting.

    From here you have a great view of the surrounding rocks, forests, etc.

    You can also stop off. But we did not try, so no recommendation, if the food tasted good or not good ...
