    The Druid Stone is an impressive natural monument. The basalt cone was probably already used as a religious site by the Celts.
    Every year on Ascension Day there is a procession to the Druid Stone.
    Originally the druid stone had an even higher point, which was probably broken off for tactical reasons in the 30 Years War.
    In 1979 the Druid Stone was struck by lightning. Since then it has had to be supported by reinforced concrete beams.

    In good and bad weather a delicious barley-free wheat can be drunk in a small rustic pub. Right next to the Druid stone!

    No wonder the church has taken this mystical place for itself.
    You stand there in awe and marvel.

    The Druidenstein was probably used by the Chatten \ Katten, a Germanic tribe, as Thingplatz. If one sees the Christian works next to it, it seems obvious that before the christianization here was a place of sacrifice for the old gods.

    In the 1950s, the druid stone was also used as an open-air stage
