Puzzling grooved pebbles from the Hotzenwald

Imagine that: You wander through the mountains and valleys of the Hotzenwald - this is part of the southern Black Forest with a view of the Swiss mountains - and you come across large stone ramparts everywhere, which were erected long ago on the slopes and on the plains without any sense being recognizable. For more than a decade, the artist and local historian Paul H. Klahn has researched, measured and mapped these walls and presented them to archaeologists in essays and conversations. And there is still no explanation for these extensive prehistoric sites! They rise as if from an unknown time into our present.

Legendary: Mysterious rocks on the way to the Devil's Stone

If you have read my article about the Nordburg Lichtenstein in the Haßberge Nature Park, you may have noticed that the interior holds some "unearthed" treasures, which science does not really use or at least from my point of view leaves a lot in the dark. Those who visit the inner courtyard of the castle and follow the so-called "Legend Trail" down the valley should not be less surprised what awaits them there.

Plagues, paranormal and weather anomalies: The Augsburg miracle sign book

Although one does not know one's client, one suspects Heinricht Vogtherr and Hans Burgkmair the Younger as executive artists: The Augsburg Wonder Sign Book of the Renaissance reveals on (at least) 167 partly enigmatic drawings not only symbols of Christianity with explicit explanations, but one also learns something about extraordinary observations of nature and enigmatic beings of that time. The original appeared in a German auction house in 2007 and was then resold several times.

Good stamina: Teufelstisch in the Palatinate Forest

Traces and legacies of the natural erosion force in the soft sandstone of the Bund are stumbling across all corners and ends in the hiking area of the Palatinate Forest. The lush green landscape is repeatedly interrupted by rock formations whose bizarre shapes remind one of imposing western backdrops. Especially unusual is the 14 meter high Teufelstisch in Hinterweidenthal, which from my point of view makes an outstanding figure.

Rotenhan monolith installations: a rock castle or a pagan place of worship?

Near Ebern in the district of Haßberge there are interesting rocks which formed the architectural "pillars" of a castle ruin of the noble family "those of Rotenhan". Rock castles are rare in the region anyway. Before they were used as fortresses, did the striking rocks, which were already thickly overgrown, serve another purpose? Much is unclear... even if science once again has no doubts.

The hollow stone in the Haßwald forest

Reutersbrunn is a small, at first glance insignificant village community in Lower Franconia. The authors of the book "Black Madonna" (Xavier Maria Gwaltinger and Josef Rausch) state that the place is literally "infested with pictures of the Virgin Mary". In fact, crucifixes can be found everywhere at the entrances to towns and at courtyards in a "exhibition density" that I did not notice so much when passing through the surrounding towns. If I had looked there a little longer and more intensively, I might have noticed the portraits of Mary mentioned above.
