    The approximately 6-meter deep cave is contrary to the warnings on the information board in surefootedness in my opinion easily accessible. From the cave come some finds from the early Celtic period (around 500 BC).

    Really beautiful place with extreme far-sightedness over the space Nuremberg and with orientation to the west ideal to watch one or the other wonderful sunset.

    A really nice view!
    The tour itself is good to walk. For our conditions a pleasant length. Already a good climb, but with variety. It goes a lot through the forest. The more beautiful the view from the Glatzenstein. From here we could also make out the Nuremberg TV tower.
    Unfortunately, a lot of archeology is not visible.

    very nice to walk in the fall, because many colorful deciduous forests. stop off in the leuzenberger farmyard for a final visit, sitting in the evening sun very well and beautiful in the beer garden.

    Nice view but quite crowded (there are at nice WE at any time at least 15 people and three children).

    20 m to the left is a smaller rock and bank, there is not so much going on.

    Fantastic view of the fortress Rothenberg, the Hetzles / Lindelberg, Moritzberg, into the Pegnitztal up to Nuremberg with good view.
    The rock formation of the Glatzenstein is famous.

    Very good opportunity to take a look at the Rothenberg Fortress from the slope side.

    Summit crosses are simply part of it. Signs that you've made it. 😅

    Magnificent distant view. The climb is definitely worth it. Best during the week, then you can enjoy the distant view in peace.
