    The natural monument "Großer Wolfstein" is located in the middle of the Westerwaldsteig. These are the remains of a lava flow. At the same time, this is a legendary landmark, which was already documented in 1048.

    According to the legend, the devil should have had the idea to build a staircase to the sky. But when he flew with his load from Kirburg in the direction of Marienberg, tore the rope on which hung his building material and the falling basalt stones formed a mighty pile of stones. Others see a former Celtic place of worship in the wolfstones.
