Lots of steps to climb and a challenging access to the viewpoint next to the cross, which provides an excellent view over Oybin, but worthwhile. Always amazing how a castle could be built in Medieval times on an uneven rocky outcrop, the sheer hard work...More

A mystical ruin of gothic castle and monastery perched on a steep rock face in a small forested valley with many rocky peaks offering amazing views and great hiking. I've been to Oybin ten times and I will come many times more.
