From the parking lot P2 between Oberwielenbach and Platten the signs “Erdpyramiden” follow the “Pyramidenweg” partly over steps, partly also crossing the forest slopes to the meadows of Höllerhof and from the small saddle below the farm on the good, still signposted path short through a meadow to the earth pyramids.
