The legend of the Teufelsstein:This stone was not broken long ago. The peasants used it as a table for their card game. On such a day, the devil came along. He watched the men and their goings-on for a while, but soon got involved. At the request of the devil to be allowed to play, the men accepted without hesitation. The devil would not have forgiven them for refusing this request. So the men and the devil played. After the devil lost the first games and had to return a piece of gold from his accumulated fortune, he decided to use small tricks to get his gold back. But the men sensed the devil's cunning. They played even smarter than the devil. And so they pulled one piece of gold out of his pocket.And inevitably it happened that the devil took his last piece of gold out of his pocket. But even this bet brought him no luck and he lost. The devil jumped up in anger. A tremendous bolt of lightning struck the stone instantly, split it and the devil escaped into hell, surrounded by a cloud of sulfur.maerkische-schweiz.com/sagen/teufelstein.php
