  • It's a very steep climb but the view is worth it. Make sure to wear appropriate shows and enjoy the view. 
  • The crowded parking lot somewhat deterred us at the start, but things worked out after a few meters walk. We had the best Wetter...der ascent started slowly, was slightly sudorific, but the view was just terrific. This hike is certainly not to be the most difficult, but as easy I would describe them. We were happy to take our hiking boots.

  • Magical place, with at the top wonderful views over the Valley, the climb is quite difficult but not impossible for people who are not sports. 2 possibilities of path to climb to the top.
