You can basically not get a better view over the coty than from here. The stairs up the hill are a little exercise, but it’s really worth it for the views. Ruins as a whole are always fascinating, but the way parts of the coty...More

I must have been here for hundred of times already, usually after meals. Very easy ascending/descending. Normally it takes half an hour from one side to another. Nice view especially at dawn/dusk.

We checked out the castle ruins. You get a nice view from the top and a good look at the castle ruins

Hiked up here during Badenfahrt 2017. Nice way to get above it all, not crowded. They've got info signs all over (if you speak german or want to translate it) and the hiking trail goes through it.

As an high point in Baden, it overlooks the Baden city for both the old center and the modern one. If the weather is good, you can see snow capped Alps in the horizon towards Zürich direction. A must-see if you visit Baden.

The Stein castle is located on a hill. The castle is in ruins but the views are awesome. On a clear day you can even see the Alps in the distance. You have to climb many steps to reach on top.

Take a deep breath, its a very long way up the ruins hehe. After many steps, the view of the city is very pretty. Speciallyat sunset time! Totally worth a visit if you are into history. The ruins are very nice!
