Due to proximity to road and many easy routes probably the most popular cliff in the Okertal. Two smaller buttresses/blocks (Vorblock, Buhlturm) are usually considered belonging to Marienwand, too. Some of the routes a quites crammed in, so may feel somewhat defined.

Access issues inherited from Okertal

The Okertal is a nature protection area (Landschaftsschutzgebiet). Parts are Natura2000 area and some cliffs may be closed from February to July due to nesting falcons.

Take the bus to the southern limits of the town of Oker (bus stop Waldhaus - unfortunately this is the final stop). Walk or cycle along the road for 1.8 km. The cliff is on the right hand side on the left bank of the Oker creek. If you pass a small reservoir, go back 200 m.
