The peak of the Regitzerspitz is more like a plattform, safely protected with a fence on the steep cliffside.
As you can see it can also be done by mountain bike, riding up to the top is a bit challanging, because of some tricky steps on the top, try it!
If you want to see the Rhinevalley from 600 meter above, then hike up to the Regitzerspitz.
Hike up there on a good path and enjoy the view from the top.
Behind the fence the cliff drops several hundert meters down towards the river and the wineyards.
The peak on the picture looks wild, but the path on the back side is not real steep, it is really a hiking tour, not a climb.
Don't worry, the path is safe!!!
Check also the map in the next tip.
The path is well marked with yellow signs
Equipment: Light hiking boots
Water and a snack
