    Since the box house no longer exists (January 2020) and has been removed to the ground, the corresponding stamp box is now at this crossroads.

    However, there is nothing to see here - this is just the current location of the stamp box. A visit to the nearby cliffs is recommended.

    As of January 2020 - the Kaestehaus was demolished to the ground and therefore no longer exists.

    The stamp box (HWN 118) is located a few meters further at the next crossroads with Kästestrasse.

    The "new" location of the stamp box 118 of the Harz hiking pin!
    The stamp box has been removed (from the now completely demolished cheese house) and has been repositioned here at the fork in the road.
    In addition, a small bench invites you to rest and dry the stamping ink and a large information board motivates you to do new things ;-)
    From here it is about 70 meters to the actual cliffs.

    The hosts of the Kästeklippen hut are currently (August 2020) running a mobile shelter and selling wild boar bratwurst, bratwurst, coffee and water (other drinks on request) for very socially acceptable prices. Since the place is a bit remote and the great effort is very cheap, I recommend every visitor to support this by purchasing a delicious wild boar sausage!
    Open in good weather from 11:00 to at least 15:00.

    The stamp box was moved with the demolition of the cheese house. It is now 50 meters further at the junction of the forest road.

    !! The stamping point has apparently been implemented and is no longer where the Kästeklippen inn used to be. There you can still get the virtual stamp for the app
