    If you go along the forest path and come to the Junker Schilling Square you will initially see only the rocks. If you go around the rocks, you can see the picture of Junker Schilling ;-)

    Eternal gratitude of the Kottenheimer for a piece of gifted land. This is depicted. Nice rest area attached.

    Junker Schilling: Great rest area near Ettringen, which should remind of a forest donation to the Kottenheim population. A good place for a picnic with children.

    In front of the rock formations, a millstone that has been converted into a table invites you to take a break

    "... In the Middle Ages a knightly noble family owned a farm in Kottenheim. The coat of arms of this noble family still represents the coat of arms of the local community today eight bars. The coat of arms decoration consists of a helmet and a turning to the right, growing swan with a black and a white wing. The first document to be sealed with this coat of arms comes from Lantzlot von Kottenheim, which was first mentioned in 1394 and 1448 died.
    Another important descendant of this noble family is the Junker Konrad Schilling von Lahnstein, whose mother was Margarethe von Kottenheim. Junker Konrad gave his neighboring forest properties to the citizens of Kottenheim, which is why he is in good standing in the community to this day. The tuff epitaph from the year 1539, which was restored in 2012-2014 and shows the Junker in life-size, armored and with a helmet on his head, can be seen in the parish church of St. Nicholas. A statue on a fountain plinth at the end of Junker-Schilling-Straße in the center of the village, as well as a picture engraved and colored in a large basalt boulder in the Kottenheimer Wald (local recreation area "Auf der Birk") also show the Junker and explain the donation of the forest .
