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.

Worth a trip in every season. Although this rock formation is not really impressive - and there is also no good view, the Teufelsmühle is of course appealing and also invites you to take a rest - thanks to tables and benches.If you are lucky enough to stay here alone - you can let the sounds of the forest soak in very beautiful surroundings.However, there can be a lot of hustle and bustle on weekends ...

The Great Devil's Mill is also a monument and consists of Ramberg granite. The wool sack weathering, which makes the rock look like stone blocks stacked on top of one another, can be seen very well.

The large and the small Teufelslmühle are two wildly piled rock groups made of granite. The official natural monuments mark the southwest flank of the Viktorshöhe, which is 581.5 m above sea level. NHN are the second highest elevation of the Harz Ramberg. Here you can get stamp number 189 for the collectors of the HWN. There is a bench in front of the boulder that invites you to rest and the children can climb a bit.
