    the area is told the following legend:“Once, when Limburg Monastery was built on the mountain opposite Teufelsstein, the monks abused the devil as a construction worker. They had convinced him that he wanted to build an inn, and in this way persuaded him to pile up the huge stone blocks. Only when the bells called for the solemn consecration of the basilica after the completion of the complex did the devil notice the deception. Full of fury, he wanted to grab the huge boulder on the opposite mountain and hurl it at the new monastery. But God protected the monks, the stone became soft as butter. Then the devil sat on it, and his butt, feet and tail left marks that are still visible to this day ... "Mountain station of the gondola destroyed by arson
    In the book The Painterly and Romantic Rhine Palatinate, he published an epic poem in the book The Picturesque and Romantic Rhine Palatinate, which ends as follows:
    "Still resting in the same place
    a silent witness and alone,
    where he fell from the Lord of Hell,
    on a high mountain - the Teufelsstein. "[2]

    The Devil's Stone is located on the top of the mountain of the same name. He has clear traces of editing and probably served in earlier times as a cult object.
    Hewn steps lead up to where there is a depression. It is interpreted as a sacrificial bowl for religious rites of the Celts. A blood groove runs down the stairs.
    Until 1981, a gondola lift led up from the site of the Dürkheimer Wurstmarkt.

    Crazy how this giant stone drones there. There are many options for descending towards Bad Dürkheim. I like to go down the steep trail directly on the Teufelsstein (in Komoot as a highlight "Teufelsstein stairs")

    Not so diabolical on closer inspection, but still worth seeing.
