    Powerful and steep, with terraces, overhangs and rocky outcrops. Covering an area of ​​more than two hectares, the rock, together with its immediately adjacent vineyards and dry stone walls, forms a community recognized as worthy of protection in 1938.

A typical landscape element that is unique in its special shape - shaped by the Neckar River when it has sunk into the hard slate of the Muschelkalk.

    From the viewpoint Krappenfelsen one has a wonderful view over the Neckar valley and the largest Steillagenareal in Württemberg with its impressive Terassenweinbergen. A natural stone staircase leads to the viewpoint.
