According to legend, the sea of rocks has arisen in the dispute between two giants. One lived on Hohnstein and the other on Felsberg. The two threw themselves screaming and screaming with the huge boulders. But the giant from the Hohnstein had more stones and so the giant was buried by the rock mountain under the stones. To this day you should hear him roar sometimes.

The wooden bridge was built in 2006 by the Bergstrasse / Odenwald nature park in cooperation with the municipality of Lautertal. It lies approximately in the middle of the rock sea and from here you probably have the most beautiful view of the round boulders ...
Either you start your tour towards the kiosk in the middle of the rocky sea or you use the place for a long rest.

This bridge is more of a footbridge because it does not span the rocks but is supported on many supports / piles between the rocks.
But that makes it very stable and it is very wide (two-way traffic possible). The railings in particular are designed to be structurally stable because, of course, many visitors look down towards the valley and sometimes climb around on the railing too.

A sea of stones suddenly appears unmistakably. Another outstanding feature of the Odenwälder Felsenmeer is that you can discover countless workpieces made by Roman stone carvers. A break on, next to, in the stones is a good idea. A kiosk can be seen at the top left in the direction of the pilgrimage. The kiosk is not barrier-free.
