Mountain Biking Highlight
The natural monument Ketzerstein lies at an altitude of 610 m south of the community Liebenscheid-Weißenberg. The heretic stone is an unusual basalt formation. The lava did not freeze into pillars but into blocks. The basalt blocks have another special feature: the high iron content influences every compass needle. Possibly, the unusual rock formation was used in pre-Christian times as a sacrificial altar.

The heretic stone is a 610.1 m above sea level. NN high mountain in the High Westerwald. Its north side drops off to the village Weißenberg and continues to Liebenscheid into the Erlenbachtal. From the south side you can see over a shallow hollow the 1½ km distant northern tip of the Fuchskaute.
