The impressive rock formation and the view from the cozy refuge make up for the climb in any case. Even Goethe was inspired by the distant view and wrote the fourth act of his "Iphigenie", the beginning of which is immortalized on a tablet in the stone.

Here not only the view lures. Here one is also very close to the poet-prince. Just like the Great Hermannsteins, the Schwalbenstein is a rock in the Thuringian Forest, which was often visited by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe when he was in Ilmenau. He wrote here on March 19, 1779, the IV Act of Iphigenia. This is indicated by a tablet attached to the rock.
