    The natural monument "Hohler Stein" (450 m above sea level) is a large, impressive niche with a diameter of 30 m at the upper end of the valley of a small brook blade in the Stuben sandstone. A small waterfall falls 5 m deep into a wide basin in the rock.
    The house sandstone formation consists of a layer package that contains harder sandstone layers as well as those with larger, easily rinsed claystone lenses. Sandstones and sandstone slate that are more clay-bound and thus softer also facilitate the formation of niches or caves, as is typical for many blades in this landscape. The ND "Hohler Stein" is particularly impressive in winter when it is adorned with meter-long icicles and the brook turns into a bizarre ice formation. From here a footpath leads up stairs and footbridges, where again cave-like structures form a basin in the high forest.

    Great rock arch hidden away from the paved paths. The direct way down here was not to be found at 10 cm snow. The few meters from the forest, it was therefore off-grid.

    in May 2020 the Hohle Stein unfortunately looked very "overgrown", tree trunks lay around and the stairs were missing

    The hollow stone (450 m above sea level) is a mighty sandstone wash with a bridge. A fascinating monument to erosion.
    A detour to this imposing natural monument is definitely worth it.

    Is a little out of the way, many trees were felled on the slope.

    Really great highlight, you have to be careful because several tree trunks lay over the path, a little surefootedness is required here. (As of June 2020)

    Great natural monument. A stone arch like a bridge.
    Somewhat inaccessible due to fallen trees.
    According to Komoot there is a "circular route". But actually there is only one way from the main path. Also shown as the way back. Those who follow the Pfas on Kommot simply have to go through the forest. There is no longer a way there.

    The Hohle Stein, which you can cross like a bridge, was created by a lot of undermining. You can also take a short break here
