    On the southern slope of the Schreckenberg you will find a large field of basalt rubble. It is of volcanic origin and these stones often appear bluish due to the incidence of light, although they are actually gray-dark. Because of their expansion, the block fields were elevated to a natural monument.

    The blue stones on Schreckensberg are most likely to appear blue at a certain angle of incidence of sunlight. Best seen from below. It looks nice.

    I can not say that the stones are blue - but it is always a nice way. Go straight through a stone landscape. Beware of moisture: there is really slippery the way.

    A sea of ice age blocks that you can walk right through. The climb is rocky and steep, but it's worth it! Once at the top, the tower on the Schreckenberg awaits you, from where you can enjoy a wonderful all-round view.

    The path over the blue stones to the Schreckbergturm is very beautiful and requires surefootedness.

    A large basalt scree field can be seen on the southern slope of the Schreckenberg. Basalt is superficially cooled magma of volcanic origin and occurs in different compositions depending on how it is formed. According to the explanations on the geological map, sheet no. 4621 Wolfhagen, the Schreckenberg is the "Limburgite" basalt type, which also occurs on the Bärenberg, Großer Gudenberg, Rohrberg and Sollberg.
    It may have something to do with the incidence of light that the gray-dark stones also appear bluish.

    If you climb up or down over the southern slope of the Schreckenberg to the Schreckenbergturm, you are going through this interesting section. However, surefootedness is required here (hiking sticks are helpful, but not necessary), as it is a scree field of basalt stones.

    Easy to reach from Zierenberg on the Habichtswaldsteig. The Schreckensberg with its block heaps and the tower are definitely worth it.

    The stone dump, over which an almost alpine ascent to the Schreckenbergturm runs, was created more than 2 million years ago during the Ice Age. The stones shimmer bluish depending on the incidence of light, hence the name of the natural monument.
