    The view is already awesome, but who, like me, is plagued by a fear of heights, with this rock already has a bigger task in front of him. Fortunately, there are fences around to keep it all around. 😉

    Approximately 70 m high rock massif in the middle of the city Dahn, directly at the premium ways "Felsenland Sagenweg" and "Dahner Rundwanderweg". From the observation cockpit at the summit cross great view of the spa town Dahn, the mighty castles massif "Alt-Dahn, Grafendahn and Tanstein" and the surrounding area.

    Landmark of the health resort Dahn.
    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), [2] 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.

    Nice view of Dahn down - the lookout point is from Dahn well visible through the summit cross. Nice that Armin has already provided the story of the name of the rock!

    Very close to the village of Dahn and even if you are not equipped for a hike, but just follows a spontaneous idea. Nevertheless, comfortable shoes are recommended (roots, etc.).

    From Jungfernsprung the view extends over Dahn and the surrounding sandstone cliffs. The bird's eye view of Dahn is impressive.
