The frog rock is a striking and more than five meters high rock formation, above Ilsenburg in the area of the Harz National Park. You can reach it very well on the bark beetle path, here is also the stamp 09 of the Harzer hiking nobility. The rock reminds with a little imagination of an oversized jumping frog, or as some say more like a turtle, just the imagination knows no bounds.

The frog rock, also called frog stone cliff, in the Harz is a natural monument near Ilsenburg in the Harz district in Saxony-Anhalt.
It is a formation of granite rocks, which have the shape of a sitting frog.
The frog rock is located in the northern part of the Hochharz in the Harz National Park southwest of Ilsenburg.
It is located a little to the southwest below the summit of the Meineberg (544.5 m above sea level), which rises northwest of the Ilse, at about 515 m above sea level. NN.
The frog rock is included as No. 5 in the system of stamping points of the Harz hiking pin; the stamping point is in a nearby refuge.

On the one hand there is the stamping point no. 20 meters away. 5 of the Harzerwandernadel, directly in the refuge, on the other hand, the frog rock is indeed a popular hiking destination. Even in various reading is described, that one needs a lot of imagination to interpret a frog here. In my opinion, the middle part resembles more the head of a turtle and I could not recognize a frog even after a long observation.
