This was a very enjoyable hike. I did it in the early evening and so was able to see the sunset from the Waldhäuser Panorama Lookout at the end of the hike. The path from Fredenbrücke to Martinsklause is very beautiful, but if you are going along this way on another hike, like back from Mount Rachel, then you can save the time and energy by staying on the gravel road from the Waldhäuser Fire Department going straight to Martinsklause. I would certainly recommend taking the hike as described going up the Himmelsleiter/ Heaven Stairway to the peak instead of the other way around.
