    The "Bonifatiusfelsen" reminded with a plaque in gold-plated letters of the regained freedom from the French occupation - GOD FATHERLAND FREEDOM - MDCCCXVV.
    As early as the 19th century, an iron cross had been erected on the top of the rock, according to tradition, there was an early chapel from the time of the conversion of the Gentiles there. Its location in the park area made it possible to use and design a dignified space within the park for religious festivals or for state events and ceremonies.
    The rock also has remains of the medieval castle walls.
    The cross on the top of the rock, renewed in 1992, reminds of the Christianization of Thuringia.
    The ascent to the rock is made possible via a staircase cleverly carved into the rock.
    The vantage point on the rock is now overgrown by trees, but the bench on the rock offers the best view of Altenstein Castle and the park fountain.
