Adam and Eve are an extraordinary pair of rocks that one would not even suspect here. They are a little below the actual ridge path, so open your eyes so you don't miss them. The larger rock looks like a pregnant woman, hence the name. You can also walk around the rocks on small paths, but this requires a little surefootedness.Tip for a great photo motif: Photographed from below, the cliffs look almost even more impressive.

On the northern arc of the Ith on Coppenbrügger's side, there are two eye-catching rocks called "Adam and Eve". From a certain point of view, the larger rock looks similar to a pregnant woman.
Before infinite times, at the beginning of the world, the Creator once wanted to revive the earth with god-like creatures. Thus, out of his will, a male and a female being emerged. From light and dark, firm and loose, fertile and thin soil, combined with the most varied salts and juices of the soil, he created Adam, the man of the earth. Like him, he added a companion to the man, Eve the life-givers; for, according to God's will, this generation was to multiply and to fertilize the earth fruitfully. But before God had breathed them the inspiring breath, even before both could rise from the earth alive, the evil came creeping up and blew them of his poisoning breath. The Creator saw that his work was corrupt and realized that if his two creatures were alive, immeasurable evil would arise from it. An infinite sadness overcame him. His tears dripped to the ground and drowned there, flooding everything, the life just created. Adam and Eve had still tried to save themselves on a mountain before the rising tide - but in vain. When, after long periods of time, the sun had dried up the floods, two rocks stood close together on the ridge of the Ith, where the very first human couple had died. Of the people who know nothing of those past times, but only suspect, they are called Adam and Eve.

We almost walked past this beautiful rock formation if one of us hadn't had such watchful eyes. The website ith-hils-weg.de says the following about the rocks: “At the northern arch of the Ith on the Coppenbrügger side there are two particularly conspicuous rocks called 'Adam and Eve'. Viewed from a certain angle, the larger rock looks like a pregnant woman. "

The Ith cliffs are a great rock formation that I didn't expect there.
If you want to look at it from below, you can take small branch paths down from the Ith-Hils-Weg.
However, these are not entirely without and require a certain degree of surefootedness - even if they are partially attached and provided with steps.
