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