Tips

  • Hunsbuckel

    An exposed viewing platform secured with a railing.
    The "stone man" is the rock formation that is recognizable from the Rhine as a facial profile on which one is currently standing.
    The abyss begins behind the railing, so please no experiments!

    Nice viewpoint with a great view of the Rhine Valley. The lookout point takes its name from the face of the rock, reminiscent of a face ...

    The Stone Man at Boppard

    The name comes from the rock formation that is only recognizable from the side of the Rhine. The natural formation resembles a petrified face, whereby the bulge of the eyes, nose and chin area are quite clearly recognizable when the green vegetation has been cut back. H.H. In his collection of songs and legends published in 1890, Mönch also immortalized the Stone Man at Boppard in verse:

    It came on his trains
    Hero Bacchus to the Rhine.
    Hey, what a pleasure
    He found our wine!
    You never saw such a boozer,
    Since then the wine press has swelled.
    He grabs and swirls as a mug
    A barrel, heavy and full.
    The people are seized with horror;
    You shouted and wrung your hand:
    "Gesell ', you drink us today
    All the wine in the country! "
    But the drinker slurred
    And still drank more.
    Until a voice rang out
    From the high heaven:
    "Daring drinking fellow,
    Now end your feast!
    Fall asleep at this point!
    Sleep until the last day! "
    The drinker hears the words
    Rise, fall silent, fall asleep!
    His gigantic body withered
    His face turned to stone.
