Er befindet sich bei Bad Schandau in den Schrammsteinen, denen er vorgelagert ist. Der gewaltige Fels ist fast einhundert Meter hoch und besteht aus Sandstein. Im Mittelalter befand sich auf dem Falkenstein eine Burgwarte – noch heute sind in den Fels gehauene Stufen und Balkenfalze sichtbar. (de)
  • The Falkenstein is one of the best known climbing peaks in Saxon Switzerland.It is situated near the rocky Schrammsteine ridge southeast of the town of Bad Schandau.The Falkenstein is nearly 90 m high and consists of sandstone. In the Middle Ages there were fortifications on top of the rock. Even today, the steps carved into the rock are still visible. In 1864 the first ascent of the rock was made in modern times by gymnasts from Bad Schandau. This ascent, using the climbing route known now as the Turnerweg, is also seen as the "birthday" of Saxon rock-climbing.The peak of the Falkenstein can only be reached by skilled climbers. Nowadays more than 100 routes lead to the top. The most popular ascent is Schusterweg (III), which was first climbed by Dr. Oscar Schuster in 1893. Other famous climbs on the 'Falkenstein' (with their Saxon rating grades) are the: * Südriss (VIIa) - first ascent by Oliver Perry-Smith in 1913 * Direkte Westkante (VIIIb) - first ascent by Wulf Scheffler in 1956 * Buntschillernde Seifenblase (IXb) - first ascent by Bernd Arnold (en)
