    I accidentally discovered this place while geocaching. You never really learn.

    It was the 28th of June, 1910, at half past eight, when the "Germany" in Düsseldorf ascended to its unlucky flight. On board the Zeppelin were 19 domestic and foreign journalists and eleven crew members who wanted to make a round trip over the Rhine area. But the plan did not work. The 148-meter-long aviation ship got into a storm and came off course. Rain, hail and snow finally weighed heavily on the Zeppelin, so that it lost more and more height and became stranded in the fir trees of the Teutoburg Forest. Almost all of the passengers remained undamaged and were able to leave the "Germany" with a rope ladder. Only one crew member injured his jump from the floating in the treetops vehicle.

    The Zeppelinstein is always worth a visit. Even I discovered it by pure chance.
    It is a historical place that unfortunately has fallen into disrepair.
    The place is well suited to take a break, whether walk, hike or mountain bike tour.

    Almost drove past the first time. Nice hut and a nice story with luckily "good" ending.

    Here the first passenger airship crashed on the Düsseldorf-Basel route. The Zeppelin Stone is always worth a visit. I discovered it myself by accident, on a hike.
    It is a historic place that has unfortunately been forgotten.

    A zeppelin crashed here on June 28, 1910. The stone commemorates it. Thank god there weren't any dead.

    There is such a large memorial stone for a failed flight. For a successful one a much smaller one in Lippstadt / Bad Waldliesborn.
