Felsenmeer Lautertal - Reviews From Travellers
What travellers say about Felsenmeer Lautertal
On a sunny Saturday afternoon we went on a trip to Felsenmeer. The place consists of boulders piled together like a river. This rock bed was formed 340 million years ago, 15 kilometers under the earth. The weathering process over the years slowly exposed the rocks over millions of years and now piles of them are laying around in the sides of the mountain. You can climb through the rocks to the top of the hill and there is a zig zag path around it. The place is pretty popular especially for families with little children. There is also a small museum in the entrance that shows different kinds of rocks, and the animals live around the area. A long time ago, Romans used to make large columns from the rocks here and transported it over to other parts of the continent. Some of the large rocks with masonry works from the Romans can still be seen here. There are no entrance fee to Felsenmeer.

The Felsenmeer Lautertal is a massive field of boulders that covers an area of nearly 200 acres. Some of the boulders are as large as houses, and the entire field is surrounded by a dense forest. This fascinating geological formation was created over millions of years by weathering.
