Chattensteine - Zierenberg
Chattensteine - Zierenberg

This rock formation has a protected room at the top. The name stems from the early Hessian ancestors. Because of the bushwood, it is also shady (schattig) which makes the name sometimes look "Schattensteine".

Rock formations do create strong places. They have been used for rituals, they have given shelter, some were used for meetings. Eroded sand stone and basalt rock forms large parts of middle Germany. In limestone sometimes there exist stalactite caves. When they collapse, the relicts are impressive.
