Travel Information

When parking your car near the castle at the parking lot for the castle, you turn around and take the hiking path up through the forest for about 700 meters. While walking, you see on your left side a rock formation: you have to get on the other side of it. After walking for about 700m, you reach this long rock and can go back in direction of the castle, but on the opposite side of this rock to reach the rock called Haferfels.
Use a headlight, if you go there for sunrise, because the "path" is very narrow and using both hands is recommended in some situations.
The walk takes around 30 minutes.
Crowd Factor Nearly no other people

That's a really nice view and a great photo. How long did you walk to this spot from the parking lot? Guess that's quite important to know when you want to be there for a sunrise photo. Thank you dear Laurent for adding this beautiful photo! Cheers, Manuel

I can´t remember exactly, but I would say at least half an hour. The „way“ that leads there, isn´t the easiest on. I discovered this rock while visiting the castle and it was only on the second attempt, that I finally reached it in late afternoon: took some nice sunset pictures there too, so definitely worth the effort. Best regards, Laurent
