The Siebenschneiderstein (Söbenschniedersteen) is an erratic block on the island of Rügen. It is located about 30 m from the cliff of Gellort on the Baltic Sea beach, one kilometer northwest of Cape Arkona. It has a mass of 165 t and a volume of 61 m³ and, like around 20 other erratic boulders, is one of the legally protected geotopes on the island of Rügen.
The stone is not the largest erratic boulder on Rügen (that's the Buskam with 600 m³), but it marks the fourth largest erratic boulder in Rügen, the northernmost point of the island and thus East Germany. It is made of Karlham granite.

On the peninsula Wittow, in the north of the island Rügen, is a 45 meters high, consisting of chalk and Geschiebemergel steep coast - Cape Arkona. Once a place of worship of the Ranen, Rügen's almost northernmost point is one of the most popular destinations on the island today. From the cliff you have an impressive view over the Baltic Sea and the highest probability for the best weather.
