    From the summit cross you have a very nice view of the Harz foothills with the Ballenstedt airfield. You can also watch the take-offs and landings very well.

    To recommend to the sunrise / sunset necessarily. The sun dips the counterstone in a very great light.

    Especially nice at sunset. The Große Gegenstein is the first rock on the Teufelsmauerstieg at Ballenstedt. From the observation deck great view of the Harz, the Brocken and Ballenstedt.

    Great view of the surrounding area. The steps are certainly not suitable for some people and even small children should be taken in places by the hand.

    Here you should climb the steps between the rock to the summit cross.
    Is worth seeing and worthwhile.

    Großer Gegenstein in Ballenstedt, also easy to reach by car. Another part of the Teufelsmauer.

    @Alwin: The stamp was there as a season stamp for the 2010 season opening. Now only via the app if you already have it on your cell phone. As I recently read, it is being discontinued and can no longer be downloaded. 😭

    The counter stones, consisting of the large and the small counter stone, are two distinctive, free-standing rock formations of the Devil's Wall

    Be sure to go up there. You have a nice view. And you can digitally stamp them in the HWN app.
