  • Natascha

    The Hohle Stein (450 m above sea level) is a powerful sandstone leaching with a bridge. A fascinating erosion monument.
    A detour to this impressive natural monument is worthwhile in any case.

    The natural monument "Hohler Stein" (450 m above sea level) is a large, impressive niche of 30 m diameter at the upper end of the valley of a small brook blade in Stubensandstein. A small waterfall falls 5 m deep into a wide basin in the rock.
    The Stubensandsteinformation consists of a layer package, which contains not only harder sandstone layers but also those with larger, easily flushable claystone lenses. Clay-bound, therefore softer sandstones and sandstone slates facilitate such niche or cave formations, as they are typical of many blades of this landscape. The ND "Hohler Stein" is particularly impressive in winter when it is adorned by meter-long icicles and the stream becomes a bizarre ice structure. From here, a footpath continues up stairs and footbridges, where again cave-like formations form a cauldron 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.
