    The Iron Man is crossed by several forest and hiking trails, making it a popular meeting place. In addition, there are seating areas and a refuge in its immediate vicinity, making it an ideal resting place.

    Since time immemorial he stands in the middle of the forest of the Kottenforst, about 8 km above Roisdorf, at the intersection of five forest trails: An inconspicuous, a few meters high iron stake, but miraculously does not rust and apparently so deep in the earth, that he did not even let himself off the ground with a powerful tractor - as was attempted. Legends surround him, who is respectfully called by the population of the villages around the Kottenforst the "Isere Mann" (Iron Man).
