    Impressive knocker. If you are brave, you can dig around a bit.

    On the ridge "Acker" there are about a dozen landscape-defining rock cliffs of quartzite rock. One of these striking rock formations is the Hanskühnenburgklippe. It is located directly on the crest of the long ridge. The cliff is located on the grounds of the Harz National Park and about 300 meters from the Hanskühnenburgbaude. Incidentally, you still have a nice view of the rock from the observation tower of this cottage - until the surrounding trees will block the view in a few years.
    A few meters east of the Hanskühnenburgklippe leads the trail along the Reitstieg. From there, the eight-meter-high rock formation is clearly visible. A narrow (unofficial) byway branches off directly to the cliff. The Hanskühnenburgklippe is surrounded on all sides by countless large and small boulders. These scree slopes make the terrain difficult to access.
    The actual rock cliff has an approximately quadrangular basic form. Legend has it that the Hanskühnenburgklippe is an enchanted castle. In the course of his third Harz trip in 1784, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe visited this rock. His interest was primarily the exceptional nature of the rock.
    When visiting the cliff, pay attention to the provisions of the Harz National Park. This means, for example, that for the protection of nature the marked paths must not be left. Therefore, you can not enter the wider environment of the Hanskühnenburgklippe
