Here is a nice rest area with information boards and a little shade.
The rock formations are great to look at and give the area a distinctive look and almost scary feel.
The virtually vertical sloping Burgstein is a popular training ground for Alpine and other climbers, which is often used and probably has a lot to offer difficulties.
Watching the boys and girls climb up is sometimes breathtaking and you are really afraid that nothing happens and keep your fingers crossed for the good luck.

The Burgsteinfelsen is located directly on the Altmühltal cycle path between Obereichstätt and Dollnstein. The tower-like rock is one of the most beautiful Bavarian geotopes. The distinctive rock formation of the castle stone is part of a calcareous platform that was deposited in a subtropical shallow sea during the Upper Jurassic period. The Burgsteinfelsen is also a very good example of the harmonious combination of nature conservation and recreational use. For many years, sports climbers use the 45-meter-high massif to practice their fascinating sport.

The Dollnstein is a steep rock for climbers with partly vertical sloping slopes.
Watching it can scare you, but of course they know what they are doing and do not do it for the first time.
The rock is used by its Steep form as a training route for alpine climbs.
