Arrival by S-Bahn:
A hike is possible both from the “Stadt Wehlen” S-Bahn station in around 60 minutes and from the “Kurort Rathen” S-Bahn station in around 45 minutes. The Rauenstein is signposted at both train stations. 

Arriving by car: 
By car, drive to the Weißig hiking car park above the Kurort Rathen. The way to the Rauenstein is signposted from there and takes about 20 minutes.



We attach particular importance to the environment, sustainability and fair cooperation. In our rock restaurant we offer food and drinks that support regional producers and we have a wide range of organic products. Much of our packaging is produced sustainably and is biodegradable. We also campaign against dumping wages in the catering industry and pay fair salaries above the industry average and minimum wage.

We believe that with respect for our nature and appreciation for our fellow human beings, together we can make a contribution to making the world a little better every day!

The almost completely forested Rauenstein was opened up for tourism in 1885, and one year later, until 1893, drinks were already being served in the Kapphöhle on the summit plateau.

In 2006 the restaurant was renovated, the goods lift was renewed, sanitary facilities were created and all rooms were renovated. The new kitchen has turned the snack bar into a real mountain restaurant with space for 65 people.
