Tips

  • DerBoelle

    The following has been handed down about the "Elwetritsche socket": In fact, it seems to be an ancient Elwetritsche washing area. Presumably these lovely but absolutely shy animals have used this topographically favorable place in the vicinity for their peculiar washing rituals. Sufficient water is available at the nearby Lourdes grotto, but the animals have moved to the more pleasant place due to the hillside location there. As known, the Elwetritsche are nocturnal, but extremely light wunnerfizzich. This in turn would explain the presence of the socket, which would allow suitable lighting fixtures to be operated at night without further ado.
    The socket itself was also used for hygienic purposes more than a quarter of a century ago by the unforgettable hiking guide Kilian Z. Back then he had already demonstrated the functionality of the socket to the amazed guests by taking his morning shave with his razor in the idyllic place.
    Measurements by the local electrician journeyman showed a voltage of 223 VHC (Volt Hawwer Current) at 89 Hertz.

    Pleasant resting place under the rock. The rock is walkable and at the back is another bank with a view.

    True, a nice rest area, the bank and the view on the back are hereby also photographically documented 😉 Only the Elwetritsche socket we did not find.

    Free-standing rock above the Geiersteine "with the washing area of the Elwetritsche" well equipped with a socket for the perfect shave and good hair styling. A magical place with plenty of space in front of the large rock above the Geiersteine.

    There are a few wonderful paths all around. The Elwetritsche socket is a nice gag.

    Good to rest and the socket is worth a look (in the middle of the rock face)!

    Unfortunately none found in personal hygiene. Nice new bank set to snap in.

    The round sockets did not like the Elwetritsche and therefore stayed away. So the Elwetritsche expert has now set up a square Elwetritsche jar and you have it there, you come by again to shave! What would the Palatinate be without the Elwetritsche ...
