Magical rocks: Felsenmeer Lautertal
Finding our meeting point:
We will meet on Protected content
Folk tales say, that the Felsenmeer is the work of two giants living on opposite sides of the hill. One day, the giants got into a fight and started throwing rocks at each other. Since of the giants had significantly more material to throw, his opponent was eventually buried underneath the rocks. Sometimes you can still hear him groaning and moaning from below ...
So much for local lore :-)
Most of the hike leads through the forests surrounding the Felsenmeer, a true cascade of rocks spilling down the slope of the mountain. As it was already used as a quarry during Roman times, we will see traces of Roman workmanship, for example a gigantic stone column which was apparently defective and left in the forest.
If the weather and lighting is good, you are likely to have many opportunities for interesting photography.
At the end of our hike we can snack at an unusual local restaurant: Protected content . At lunchtime they serve both traditional Odenwald Handkäse mit Musik and tabouleh or fried bananas.
Thank you Clifford for recommending the Felsenmeer!
