    Nice place to rest on the stones. The climbs there are very beautiful on natural trails.

    Beautiful view over the Hessian and Thuringian Rhön; from Wasserkuppe and Milseburg to Frankenheim. Impressively large basalt block sea.

    The Schafstein is a great nature reserve / geotope.
    Statement on the HP of the Rhön Biosphere Reserve: "Its mighty basalt block seas that characterize the north and south slopes are among the most impressive in all of Central Europe."

    The hike to the Schafstein is entertaining. The ascent or descent is sometimes slippery when wet. The view of the basalt stones (block basalt) but also from above is very interesting.

    The detour from the Guckaiseeweg to the sheep stone was surprising with its "old" forest and the good information about geology
