    Nice rock formation in great surroundings. Since you felled trees heavily in autumn 2019, I think it's actually nicer since you now have a lot more light / sunshine.

    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 and stay here alone - you can let the sounds of the forest affect you in very beautiful surroundings.

    However, there can be a lot of hustle and bustle on weekends ...

    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.

    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).

    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.

    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.

    A small but fine highlight, otherwise there is little interesting to see on the route around Friedrichsbrunn

    There are enough seats. The stamping point is right on the edge of the road, so it cannot be overlooked. At the back you can climb all the way to the top of the Teufelsmühle.

    Great stamp of the Harz hiking pin. You should definitely take a look at the small Teufelsmühle, which we liked even better than the big one.

    The Große Teufelsmühle is also an area monument and is made of Ramberg granite. The wool sack - weathering, which makes the rock look like stone blocks stacked on top of each other - can be seen very well.
