About Teufelsmauer

The Teufelsmauer is a rock formation of the hard sandstone of the Upper Cretaceous in the northern part of the Harz Przedgórze in the center of Germany. This rock face runs from Blankenburg via Weddersleben and Rieder to Ballenstedt. Many legends and myths have been woven in order to try to explain the unusual rock formation. It was placed under protection as early as 1833 and, in 1852, by the head of the district authority in order to prevent quarrying of the much sought-after sandstone.
