  • Yes, this memorial stone is right behind the Ferdinand stone and should also be mentioned at this point!
    otherwise I don't want to make any further comments about these memorial stones (that's just the story)

  • The Ferdinand stone is reminiscent of the last free-living wolf, which was killed by Count Ferdinand to Stolberg-Wernigerode and is located on Schindelstieg above Ilsenburg.

  • Just great. Although there is not much to see here, but it is very peaceful and quiet because not too many hikers get lost here.

  • For me, the Ferdinand stone is one of the most beautiful stamps of the Harzer hiking nobility. The place radiates an incredible peace. A hike from Ilseburg over the Heinrich-Heine-Weg and Schindelstieg over the Ferdinand stone and back over the Plesseburg and the Ilsestein is one of my favorite rounds in the Harz: anwolf.blog/2019/02/17/ilsetal-und-ferdinandsstein -lieblingsrunden-in-resin /

  • It is advisable to use the signposted paths. Other paths sometimes lead to quite adventurous regions. Currently, some paths are also inaccessible due to the wind break and logging.

  • I don't understand why the flap of the stamp box was turned to face the prevailing wind direction.
