    The Hohe Stein is an extraordinary natural monument in the Möckenloher hallway. It was created by filling a karst column with quartz sand in the Cretaceous period. In the course of millions of years, the originally loose filling has transformed into a hard and resistant rock (quartzite). The surrounding Jura rock has disappeared today due to weathering, so that only the former filling remains as a remarkable group of rocks.

    It can be assumed that prehistoric man, especially the Celts, worshiped this place as a natural sanctuary. However, further information is reserved for future investigations.
