The trail starts at the Berghotel Predigstuhl where there are also several parking spaces. The path begins on the forest road behind the mountain hotel. After a few hundred metres the path goes up very steeply on the right through the forest. After a short time, the first steps or steel ropes also begin. We continue on a forest path over a forest path to a saddle. Some steel cables lead directly below the summit of the preaching chair. A hiking trail brings us back down to a forest road at the back of the summit.
