    The rocking stone is quite an experience. A huge stone lies on top of another and can be made to shake by one person. Certainly an experience with children too!

    Wobble or rocking stones (English rocking stones) are mostly phenomena caused by deposits or weathering in boulders that balance easily movable on their base. They are formed preferentially from granitic outcrop rock as a later phenomenon of wool sack weathering, less often from horizontally banked sedimentary rocks.

    First of all, the weathering processes widen the primarily created fracture systems in the rock until the rock complex disintegrates into individual blocks over time, which are then gradually eroded - more and more fragmented. In rare cases, larger individual blocks are preserved in an exposed "wobbly" position. A type of shape similar to the rocking stone is the mushroom rock.

    The astonishing mobility of the balanced, often huge masses led in many places to the creation of myths and legends in which such stones play an essential role, for example as oracles or "toys" of giants.

    Another genus are rocking stones created by human activities. In Ganløse Eged, a 167 hectare forest on the Danish island of Zealand, the stone of a Langdysse (dolmen) has been turned into a rocking stone.

    All "restaurants" on the way are closed on Saturday
    (From Natternbach / Wackelsteine / Tal and back). The inn inTal is only open from 017 o'clock. So it's best to bring your own food and drink. Dinner at the Kirchenwirt in Kopfing!

    The ascent is very steep shortly before the finish.

    The Wackelstein-Steig No. 84 from Entschenreuth leads directly to the stone. The path is beautiful, only the last ascent is very steep.

    There is a huge stone here that we can move with our hands.
