  • I loved being here. Beautiful and high mountains, river flowing beneath that and wonderful view. Its like keep on sitting there and see the beauty if this place.  more »
  • A beautiful walking tour where you need to climb a lot of stairs and/or descend. By train or car to Rathen and there with the ferry over. The walk is signposted. Go for 2 to 3 hours. Go preferably early due to the many visitors.

  • Breathe-taking! In two ways- the views are absolutely beautiful and the walk down to Ratham village is well worth it, but steep!!!  more »

  • Mind-blowing nature space with ridiculous landscapes a short(ish) climb away. From the front the place looks kind of unassuming and then once you've up there, it's endlessly impressive.
  • Stunning views. The small additional Tour for 2€ of the firmer Fortress grounds is worth it for the amazing views. The Bridge is free otherwise. Very organized Shuttle and bis Service available
  • Unepxected scenery in North-East Germany. Breathtaking
  • Marvellously stunning, a must visit place!
  • since there's a road and car park, the place gets very crowded on weekends.
