    If you have the time and, above all, the courage, you should not miss the ascent through the ladder ladder. A long and narrow staircase leads up through a narrowing gorge. At the top, you will be rewarded with a phenomenal view. Take care of the gap between the stairs and the rock face, then you are on the safe side.

    The ascent to a rocky plateau with a great view leads over the Himmelsleiter (to reach it you have to go through the Kuhstall), the descent via usual wooden stairs. If you do not trust the sky ladder (because the steps are free, ie support on the walls, crash possibilities but also if you miss it) or if you want to climb high with small children and / or dogs, you can also climb 'back around'. It definitely worth it :)

    The cowshed and the ladder are definitely worth a visit, but this place - such as. the bastion - especially on the weekend very crowded. If possible, visit in the week or early hour if possible.

    To overcome a different kind of altitude, as the ladder is flanked on both sides by rock walls. Finally, there is a beautiful view of the "brave n" hiker
