It is no coincidence that the monastery rock path takes its name. In addition to the princely Park Inzigkofen with monastery, Amalienfelsen and the legendary Teufelsbrücke over the Höll Gorge, there are numerous rock formations to be admired, which can be found everywhere in the landscape. Again and again you catch beautiful views of the picturesque floodplain landscape of the Danube, which is a constant companion on the first half of the round tour.

A particularly beautiful panoramic view is offered by the "Känzele", the summit of an imposing rocky outcrop at dizzying heights above the Danube, which flows meandering meandering through a wide, lovely meadow valley, the Degernau. At high tide, especially after the snowmelt in spring, the floodplain turns into a lake landscape. The view extends far beyond the Degernau on wooded slopes and hills to the ruin of broken Gutenstein, the conical, with beech animal gardle and on the horizon to Lenzenfelsen (790 m above sea level) halfway to Beuron. The westward orientation of the lookout rock, guarded with railings, makes the sunset a special experience, offering a romantic encounter with nature, as it has often been promoted in the landscaped gardens of the 18th and 19th centuries.

The romantic part of the park includes the grottos, the rock overhangs and a huge rock gate, which the hiker reaches on a stairway on the steep descent from the Känzele.Particularly impressive is the fog cave, a rock grotto more than 5 meters high and over 10 meters deep, which during the use of Inzigkofen as summer residence by hereditary prince Karl-Anton and his young family in the 1840s furnished with tables and wooden benches and along with ancient wooden weapons the rock walls was decorated.At the end of hunts, the route, the game hunted, was lined up and "blown away".The picturesque rock formations are erosion of mass limestone, which was formed organically from sponge reefs in the tropical, warm White Jurassic Sea about 150 million years ago.The washouts and the entire valley landscape were shaped by the Schmeie, whose bed the Danube took over here after the Risseiszeit.
