Pfaohlen stone between Bippen and Dalum
Pfaohlen stone between Bippen and Dalum

A bit hidden near the edge of the forest stands this impressive rock. together with the Teufelsstein and the Deuvels Brotschapp it bounds the protective forest of the Holenkerl.
Ther Pfaohlenstein is a pagan cult stone at the Pfaohlen hill. It was surrounded by smaller stones. Not much of this remained.
The germanic god Pfaohl was mentioned in the book of the Merseburg magic spells.

Some of these stones have special cultural history. Often, there are significant erratic stones, or cromlechs on exceptional places, that are shown here. Many are accompanied with saga and tales. As there are no written documents from the originating times, acquiring knowledge depends on local findings. Chemical analyses of the soil can shed light on cultural usage. Sometimes there are findings of prehistoric tools, i.e. flintstone knives.
