A beautiful place with huge round boulders and the wonderful castle, where there is so much to discover! You should take your time to explore everything. I particularly liked the tour of the rocks, with its beautiful views of the surroundings, idyllic rest benches and narrow places to slip through. In this rocky environment, plants still find their place and trees loop their roots around the stone blocks to get hold.

You should have seen the castle ruins on the Oybin. Here you can experience history up close, many of the old cellar vaults have been restored and are accessible. A visit in the week is particularly recommended as it can get crowded on weekends. Those who shy away from the short, crisp ascent to the Oybin or are no longer as good on foot can use the tourist train.
