The pinnacle of this rugged coastline is the majestic Königstolle King’s Seat, which rises to a height of 118 meters.

 

 

The Elbe Sandstone Mountains in Saxony

The majestic rocky landscape of the central mountains at the top of the Elbe River fascinates onlookers. This nature entices hiking enthusiasts with charming tours and scenic sights.

 

 

The tall Anna (Lang Anna) is in Helgoland.

The tall Anna on the North Sea island of Helgoland is 47 meters high and weighs about 25,000 tons. The distinctive rock is made of red-coloured sandstone, and it rises so high that it can be seen from the regions of Brandenburg.

 

 

The Devil Wall (Toefl Mower) in the Harz region

The rocky range surrounded by fairy tales and legends stretches over 20 kilometres in the regions north of the Harz Plains. In the collection of stories of the Brothers Grimm, it was stated that Satan was the one who built it in an attempt to divide the world with God.

Caves of the “fairies” Salfelder in Thuringia

The outer rocks (extern) in the Teutoburg Forest

An at once natural and cultural monument formed by the outer rocks near Horn-Bad Meinberg in North Rhine-Westphalia. In the Middle Ages, stonemasons carved a unique image of Christ in one of these rocks. Experts assume that this beautiful rock formation was used to observe the stars or a house for worshipers.

Lake “The King” (König Ze) in Bavaria

Between the steep mountain slopes of the Berchtesgaden Alps, Lake König Ze (the King) looks like a fjord. And when the sun shines on it, the water sparkles with its azure green. The image cannot express the strange echo diffusion from among the rocks high above the lake.
