    The Great Devil's Mill in the Harz is a granite rock group on the southwestern flank of the Viktorshöhe near Friedrichsbrunn in the district of Harz, Saxony-Anhalt. It is designated as a natural monument. The highest point at about 567 m above sea level. NHN located at about 581 m above sea level. NN. [2]

    The rocks from the granite of the Rambergs consist of igneous rocks from the time of the Variscan orogeny in the Upper Carboniferous and Lower Permian. It shows the typical Wollsackverwitterungen (also known as mattress weathering) and is under conservation.

    Due to its shape, a legend developed around the cliff, which connects it with the remains of a devil-owned mill.

    The Great Devil's Mill is included as No. 189 in the system of the postmarks of the Harzer hiking aristocracy. Just under 150 m northeast is the Kleine Teufelsmühle (♁⊙, at about 577 m above sea level).

    Stones are stacked in the middle of the forest, apparently not without a plan. And still, that's the way it is! So deep in the forest, these small cliffs exude a mystical charm. In summer you can collect delicious blueberries here. A few meters up is the Little Devil's Mill.

    A nice place on the trail between Friederichsbrunn and the Bremer pond. The stones seem to be stacked by hand and have a special attraction as a photo subject. The Harzer hiking nobility has set up a stamp office here.

    Here is a stamp for the Harzer hiking nobility. The stamping point is easy to reach via paved paths without particularly many vertical meters.
