Julius Euting was a passionate hiker, u. a. President of the Vosges Club from 1876 to 1912, and was nicknamed "Ruhesteinvater" because of his fondness for hiking in the Black Forest. At his request, he was buried on a mountain ridge on the Seekopf in the northern Black Forest, roughly halfway between his home in Stuttgart / Tübingen and his place of work in Strasbourg. His grave can still be visited there today. Every year on his birthday on July 11th, according to a testamentary decree of Euting, Arabic mocha is served there - which in turn is related to his research area, oriental studies.
