Summary

Beautiful, maze-like area within an broken hilltop.

Description

Scharfenstein is a unique crag, that came into existence when the hilltop exploded around 100 years ago, when it was hit by lightning (according to legends). Nowadays it is a maze-like accumulation of Blocks and boulders in all kinds of heights and shapes. The basalt stone is really grippy, but notoriously loose.

Access issues inherited from Germany

Covid 19: Please note that each federal state has its own rules about Covid 19!

Approach

Leave the A49 and drive through Dissen. Cross a small bridge across the A49 (altough regular traffic is not allowed there) and park somewhere there. You‘ll see the Scharfenstein from afar.

Ethic

Scharfenstein has seen more and more visitors over the years. As a result, pollution as increased notably. So please, take your trash and maybe even collect some more. Have respect for the locals who maybe aren‘t to happy with us driving around on their farm roads.
