    On the Oberberg, where the height of the Ithberg to Coppenbrügge to bend, lies above the Tasty Hainholzes the devil's kitchen. Like the devil kitchen of the same name on the mere cell in the Hils, this place was presumably a pre-Christian place of sacrifice. It is enclosed on both sides by high rocks. The environment gives the impression that giant hands have scattered rocks around. Due to the fallen rocks, the place looks much more gruesome and wild than the devils cuisine on the Hils. The old tree trunks with their whitish-green moss beards, which emerge from the tangle of rocks, give the whole picture the look of a bygone era. Thus, this place may be considered either a dignified residence of pagan deities or a safe haven for pagan worship and sacrificial feasts before the victorious advance of Christianity. Here once the border between Lauenstein and Coppenbrügge should have been controversial. For a long time, the disputes continued and could not be identified for a long time. Some assume, therefore, that the name is due to the fact that perhaps one has said: "That must have been right in the devil's kitchen."
