This is how the locals hike up Devil's Stone when they don't want to start a car!

Equipment

Proper backpacking makes many things easier: pack heavy things first. The water bottle should always be within easy reach in a side pocket. All things that are often needed, such as sunglasses, camera or hiking map, belong on top. An emergency kit belongs in every backpack! A clothing according to the "onion system" is always recommended! A good hiking boot is a good companion and should never be missing on the mountain!

absolut schön. Gut 2/3 der Strecke war ich auch so gut wie alleine unterwegs. je näher ich zum Teufelsberg kam, umso mehr war los! Aber wenn man alleine durch die Wälder geht, die Aussicht an den freien Plätzen genießt, istd as ein absolut schönes Gefühl. Sehr empfehlenswert!
