The stone, which is only 88 cm high, is reminiscent of the Dominican and indulgence preacher Johannes Tetzel (1465–1519), who is said to have been robbed or slain nearby.Monument near the Tetzelstein
In 1846 the Brunswick Oberhofmarschall Anton Reinhold Edler von Lübeck (1783–1863) erected an eight meter high monument made of light yellow Elm limestone in the neo-Gothic style. The large and eye-catching monument is often mistaken for the Tetzelstein, which is about 100 m away. Inside the monument is a written description of the alleged robbery.
