The Sacrificial Stone lies on the trail to the Königsstuhl near the Herthaburg and the Herthasees in the Jasmund National Park. On the stone one can see imprints that can be interpreted as the footprints of an adult, a child and a hare. Also around this stone entwines a legend. According to a virgin allegedly confessed to the devil in the league. At the purity test, a child appeared to her as an angel and went with the maiden over the stone. The third impression on the stone was the devil in the shape of a rabbit.
The nearby sacrificial stone was probably brought to this spot in the 19th century for tourists. The often cited blood bowl and the groove-like cavity is painted red again and again. The "Blood Bowl" lying in front of the stone was supposed to serve to catch the blood. However, it was also brought to this place like the stone and is just a millstone trough. So for these stones there are no legends but only stories, but they are still a popular photo opportunity and make the legend around the Herthasee even more impressive.
