Wonderful views can be found on the Dittersbach Walls, on the rocks with the poetic names Marienfelsen, Wilhelminenwand and Rudolfstein.

Marienfelsen (428 m) - The original fire lookout point was made accessible to hikers in 1856 by Ferdinand Kinsky, who named the rock after his wife Marie Anna Kinsky, a native Princess von und zu Liechtenstein. From 2007, visitors could once again enjoy the view from the high cliffs from a wooden pavilion, after a fire caused by careless tourists destroyed the original pavilion in September 2005.

The Wilhelminenwand (442 m)was originally called "Schwarze Wand". However, this name has almost been forgotten. Later, the wall was named after Princess Wilhelmine Kinsky, Rudolf Kinsky's wife. The rock was made accessible in the middle of the 19th century and a wooden pavilion was built on it. It was modelled on a hermitage, but no longer stands today.

The Rudolfstein (484 m), also called Ostroh and formerly "Hoher Stein", has borne the name of Prince Rudolf Kinsky since 1824, who visited the rock at the time and later had a shelter built there. From the highest rock you have a unique panoramic view over the landscape of the back of Bohemian Switzerland. A path leads to the summit and towards the end there is a challenging ascent over stone steps.
