In the Middle Ages, one of the hiking destinations on this tour - the Arnstein - was defied by a fortification: wooden, relatively small, but belligerently dangerous! From this robber baron's nest, trade routes were raided and villages plundered. Today, Felsenburg Arnstein, also known as Ottendorfer Raubschloss, is one of the fascinating rock castles in Saxon Switzerland with stone traces of the former wooden construction, rock drawings and a deep cistern.
