The mountain owes its name to the monolith on its top - apparently an ancient place of worship.
"Still resting in the same place
a mute witness and alone,
where he accounted for the lord of hell,
on a high mountain - the Teufelsstein. "
Last verse of the poem from "The picturesque and romantic Palatinate"
by Franz Weiss.
