    Large monolith "with baptismal font".

    Does not come up with the idea to do anything with the broth in it (christening, drinking, washing hands, etc.) - is usually pee in it * BÄÄÄH *.

    Here you will find an old stone cube, which is said to have served as a sacrificial stone in the days of the Teutons.
    Another legend says that there used to be a church here and that the stone served as a baptismal font.

    A beautiful mystical place ..
    almost directly on the kammweg ..
    The large stone, usually filled with water, is impressive.
