    The Messelstein is a rock cliff on the 748 meter high Messelberg. From here you can look into the Black Forest with good visibility. After all, that's about 130 kilometers. A prehistoric cult site and a small castle complex were found on the Messelstein.

    At the highest point of the Messelberg, an easily accessible rock cliff jumps out of the forested steep slope in a northwest direction, the Messelstein. From its exposed location, you can see the black forest 130 kilometers away with clear visibility. Here is a small castle complex and a prehistoric site that was interpreted as a cult site.

    With good visibility you can see until Stuttgart also the castle Teck can be seen with good optics. On the way back to Antikstadel you could see the Alps.
