spdlindenberg.de/loblochstein"Lobloch, an independent wine-growing village until 1751, is now part of the community of Gimmeldingen on the German Wine Route. It is about 5.5 km as the crow flies from Loblochstein, on the western edge of the Rhine plain. - In the 18th and 19th centuries, the Lobloch family had Citizens faced a serious problem. They did not have their own forest and therefore no access to inexpensive construction timber or firewood. The Bavarian state, which also administered parts of the Palatinate after the Congress of Vienna in 1815/16, finally sold a 96-hectare property to Lobloch Piece of forest west of Lindenberg for 18,340 guilders. As a thank you for this sale (no donation, mind you!) The residents of Lobloch erected this memorial stone to King Ludwig I of Bavaria, the text of which was given by the monarch himself. - The year "MDCCCXLI" in Roman numerals refer to the year 1841. - The Loblochstein was carved from sandstone typical of the region and is almost 200 years old, despite its age n largely spared the effects of air pollution and acid rain.
