A limestone mountain with steep slopes on both sides and a narrow top. There are two here actually, Kleiner Barmstein(small Barmstein) and Großen Barmstein(large Barmstein): we only climbed the smaller one. 

The pathway is through forest, sometimes it can be very muddy. The last climb is quite steep but there are ropes and railings to help.

The spot is popular for rock climbers. The view from top is breathtaking as well as scary.
