Almost 200 meters, the calf stone massif rises above Sohland and the Spree. On top of the wooded mountain you can discover many exciting rock formations. The largest rock directly at the summit can be climbed via a staircase. Above you can catch a glimpse of the surrounding hills and mountains between the tall and dense trees. The name calf stones probably dates back to the Thirty Years' War, when farmers from the surrounding villages hid their cattle up here.
