Short pleasant walk to get to the platform, where a beautiful panorama awaits. It gives a sample of Black-Forest beauty.

Beautiful view from the platform. I recommend a walk down to the lake Ellbachsee, you can go hiking trail for adventurous about 20min. or for families with small children with strollers on a good road 50min.
