    A quiet place to relax and regenerate. I like to sit there in the sunshine on the warm sandstone plateau and take a break.

    If the bank is occupied, there is plenty of seating further up the rock! The view is even better there ...

    This interesting rock formation can be found on the Dahn Rock Trail.

    The "front seats" are not for people with fear of heights 😉

    Not really high but you still have a nice view. Located on the round of Neu-Dahn Castle

    If you pass the Dahner hut, you should make the short climb.

    Today I made the Elwetritschefels as a short detour in addition to the wolf tour themed trail. It was totally worth it. A bench with a great view of an undeveloped Palatinate Forest, as the nearby PWV hut in Schneiderfeld is hidden behind trees :-)
    From the front rock you have the thrill of the additional deep view.

    The view is almost mystical. You should be free from giddiness

    The Elwetritsch (also as Elwetrittche, Elwedritsch, Ilwedritsch; in the majority Elwetritsche (n); in (pseudoscientific) Latin bestia palatinensis) is a bird-like mythical creature that is reported in southwest Germany and especially in the Palatinate.
    The Elwetritsch is to be seen as a local equivalent to mythical creatures in other regions, such as the Bavarian Wolpertinger or the Thuringian rattle.
    If you see one here on your home rock, please leave a photo here as proof.
