    The Düwelsteen is also known as the Eichendorff rock. Here is the third stanza of an Eichendorff poem engraved:
    “There is a silent, serious word written in the forest about doing and loving rightly and what man's hoard. I have faithfully read the words plain and true, and it became unspeakably clear through my whole being. "
    Before the inscription there is also a signpost to the Teufelshöhle or Düwelskall. This is a small, not very deep cave, which is said to have served as a hiding place during the war years.

    Mystical place, a bit hidden above in the forest! From there it is only a few minutes to the Düwelskall! It is definitely worth it
