    From the vantage point on the eastern edge of the Karlsschanze you can reach the "Lazy Hunter" in a few minutes on a narrow, overgrown rocky path: a sandstone block of 6 meters in height and 24 meters in circumference.
    The strange shape of the rock has inspired many myths and legends. According to popular belief, this block is an old Saxon sacrificial stone.
    According to the legend, the name of the stone stems from the fact that a Saxon sentry in his sleep was surprised by a Frankish warrior.

    At this point, a Saxon sacrificial site in honor of Wodan should have been located some time ago. Today it is definitely an impressive rock on the cliff path in the Eggegebirge.

    Impressive rock that lets the (historicizing or even fabulous) imagination run wild. Legends and stories are easy to invent, retell or continue to spin. Just a very nice place. Whether the stories are right is not that important ...
