Situated in Potsdam, it offers various climbing techniques and feels very natural, because no artificial holds have been installed. The location at the edge of the forest gives a great experience.

Out of Heinrich-Mann-Allee into "Zum Kahleberg". Follow it up to the forest, turn left and follow until you pass the public sporting ground that is adjacent to the tower. A bit east is a great playing ground with a giant swing. No real public parking in the vicinity, so it´s best to come by bike or tram (91 and 93 go regularly - station: Zum Kahleberg). Right before the sporting ground 10-12 cars can usually park.
As a tribute to the Elbsandsteingebirge, the Saxon rating system is applied. The route descriptions are also loosely based on those of real routes. The names have a historical background of persons and companies involved in the construction.
Built in 2007 as a monolith of reinforced concrete covered with shotcrete, some say it is the best one in eastern germany.
