East of Dahn the Hochstein rises 345 m. It is one of the numerous colored sandstone formations that are mainly found in this area. The rock chain of the Hochstein stretches for about 1.5 km. The western end of the massif, the Hochsteinnadel, is particularly striking. This is followed by the Gratturm and the actual Hochstein ridge, after which further foothills continue to the northeast and south.
