    The Geiselstein is like the baptismal font a geotope. Geologically, it is a gangue breakthrough of basanite with high magnetic content. As a result, the compass suddenly loses its orientation in the immediate vicinity or on the hostile stone about 20 meters high. Therefore, the Geiselstein is also called the North Pole of the Vogelsberg.

    Always worth a visit, even if you have to make a short detour from the hiking trail.

    Unfortunately, the ascent is currently closed - I guess because of Corona: there is only one way, so a one-way street system is not feasible.
