This is the most difficult "Stiege" in the Elbe Sandstone Range. It is only for experienced hikers and climbers.

Check the weather forecast the day before because good weather conditions without snow, ice, and rain are essential. Otherwise, it’ll be slippery when climbing; so, safety first! Best months for hiking in combination with climbing are March until October. If it was rainy the day don’t start too early. The sandstone has to dry otherwise it can break while climbing. This climbing trail is not well known. It’s almost guaranteed to climb up alone.

This via ferrata is a combination of two different "Stiegen". They were created in the past to overcome the steep mountains.

This combination of hiking and climbing of two via ferrata will guarantee you an awesome day in the Elbe Sandstone Range. Check the weather forecast the day before because the right weather conditions without snow, ice, and rain are essential. Otherwise, it’ll be slippery when climbing; so safety first! We experienced a thunderstorm and hail in June. Best months for hiking in combination with climbing are March until October. It’s busier on the trails and climbing routes during summer. Spring and fall are less crowded with pleasant temps. The Kirnitzschtal / Kirnitzsch Valley is pretty popular; busier on weekends and during bank holidays. Limited parking, therefore, arrive early. A parking fee of roughly 4 € (ticket machine) is requested.
