Stone virgin - Dölau
Stone virgin - Dölau
This is the second highest menhir of Germany. It is 5,5 m high, and must habe been higher, about 8 m, until the 18th century, when the tip broke down. This is, what Christian Keferstein reported 1846. There are smaller stones lying around which are these fragments.
The name comes from a tale of a virgin that abused food and was lithified for punishment.
This tour leads us along the middle ages acid test, where the accused was posed to drive a nail into a stone to get released. It seems, some have had success. In this tour you find material from elsewhere from this site.
