Best Hiking Routes to Nonnenfelsen
  • Sebastian Kowalke

    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.

  • At the inn you can strengthen yourself whether you have hiked or climbed. great view incl.
    Achso for friends of the stamps, the inn has 4 pieces to offer.

  • 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.

  • The nun rock with its viewpoints is always worth a visit. This coming weekend (12./13.10.2019) should be best autumn weather ... so also good visibility. Also, the ascent can also be combined with a visit to the excursion restaurant "Gondelfahrt", where on the weekend traditional fishing including fresh and smoked fish sales takes place. Of course you can eat it right there. Delicious!

  • 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: zittauer-gebirge.com/cms/en/bergpass

  • Beautiful rock formations, unfortunately there are currently many rutted paths around. Since there is insufficient information about it, one runs some detours or comes home very dirty.

  • 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 ...

  • If you haven't been to the Nonnenfelsen, you haven't been to Jonsdorf either. The classic among the rocks in this area. Offers many opportunities for hikers and climbers alike.

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

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

  • The nun's rock shows in a certain perspective of several nuns. From here we have a nice view of the gondola ride, parts of Jonsdorf and some rock formations of the millstone quarries. A little note to the top tip. Even if the Zittau Mountains is a nature reserve, the forest must be maintained and preserved and that means the wood is advertised. That's why forest roads are not easy to do at times. In comparison, 30 years ago, forest trails have not been repaired for a long time, today it is time to eliminate this damage. Another tip, the Nonnenfelsen can also be reached from the Gondelfaht in the direction of the road construction site through the Zigeunerstuben via a beautiful but steadily rising path.
