    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.

    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.

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

    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. Whoever follows the Pfas on Kommot simply has to go through the forest. There is no longer a way there.
