The last stretch to the summit is very exposed and equipped with a rope belay - therefore only recommended for experienced mountain hikers who are free from vertigo.
At the summit you will have a fabulous panoramic view. The descent is via the Thüringer Schafalpe and via the Höhenweg back to the mountain station of the Sonnenkopf cable car.
