A view of Baden-Baden that will take your breath away!

You want to go up in the world? No problem! Whether you are new to the game or an old hand at climbing, there’s a way to the top that suits everybody in Baden-Baden! On the 180 foot high rock face there are tempting routes covering all degrees of difficulty. Here, and practically the whole year round, you can practise almost all climbing techniques, on the numerous walls, cracks, roofs and chimneys that the rock face has to offer.

Climbing in Baden-Baden

One word of warning: it can get pretty hot on the rock, in more ways than one! On sunny summer days, we would recommend that you plan your assault on the rock face either first thing in the morning or for the early evening. Also, you won’t find many hooks to use on the rock face, something which gets a few peoples’ hearts pumping! So if you do decide to tackle the rock without any professional supervision, make sure you have enough friends, chocks and stoppers with you, just to be on the safe side.

The rock face can only be reached on foot, from either the Altes Schloss or from the village of Ebersteinburg.
