Approximately 70 m high rock massif in the middle of the city Dahn.
The legend, whose most widespread version comes from home writer August Becker (1857),  reports:
Once a virgin went to the Dahner forest to pick berries. Far away from the houses, suddenly a man stepped out of the thicket. It was allegedly the robber baron Hans Trapp of the castle Berwartstein, who was preparing to rob the virgin's innocence. So she gathered up her skirts and set herself on the run, but the fiend came closer to her. In their panic, the persecuted did not pay attention. So she stood suddenly panting on the protruding corner of the rock and saw the houses of the place lying low down. Without thinking, the maiden plunged into the abyss. And now the miracle happened: Because her skirts stood up and let her slowly float down, she survived the jump completely uninjured. At the point where her foot hit, a spring has been bubbling since then.
