    Grandfather Rock is part of the Devil's Wall. To climb it, some strength is needed. But the effort is rewarded. From the top you have a magnificent view of Blankenburg. A few meters further you will find the grandmother rock and the Löbbecke rock. The area is a climbing paradise for children!

    Sturdy shoes are essential! Squirrels can actually be fed from above in the branch forks!

    Especially the Kammweg is nice but also difficult to go.

    The good 6.5 km short tour is perfect to go with children. Grandfather Rock has a wonderful all-round view. On this Höhenkam you go comfortably on stick and stone the good 2.7 km to the Hamburg coat of arms. Halfway along the northern path you come to an artificially created Fuchsbau along, in which one can dive and explore wonderfully. Ideal for children! Arrived at the Hamburg coat of arms, the little ones can now really let off steam and explore the beautiful area, before you can then walk on the now southern path back to the Grandfather Gelsen.

    From here you have a great view over Blankenburg. In wet weather, the climb is not recommended because the rock can be slippery then I'm too dangerous otherwise great!

    A great experience to wander over the Teufelsmauer.

    Small nice climbing deposit with great views of Blankenburg and part of the Teufelsmauer.

    Amusing summit trail over a section of the Teufelsmauer with great vantage points. Non-sure hikers I recommend to choose the path at the foot of the Teufelsmauer.

    Panoramic point with great views of Blankenburg.

    The stamp office of the Harzer hiking nobility is not located on the Großvaterfelsen but just above the Gasthaus. This is about 300 meters downhill.
