    For several centuries, a small narrow stone supports the big one and he holds and holds and holds ... But beware, at some point he will not hold and then snatches the mousetrap;)

    Builder nature. Everything has it's time. Now you can still admire it.

    The mousetrap is a natural, due to weather caused granite structure whose appearance is very reminiscent of a mousetrap. A hike to the mousetrap can be combined with a tour to the nearby Kästeklippen.

    In a well-balanced stone formation, the viewer can consider "what if this one small stone breaks out there". But so far he has kept! For how much longer?

    The mousetrap is a rather curious-looking structure in which a large boulder is held by a narrow and crooked stone. The upper granite boulder is also on the edge, as if the mousetrap would soon snap.

    A cute name, but the cliff is special. How does this huge heavy stone hold up there? - No idea. He hangs in the air with more than half and is somehow, somewhere on - let's hope he stays up there a long time.
