druid's stone - Bollendorf
druid's stone - Bollendorf

This druid's stone (also called corner stone) is one of the three prehistoric megaliths (Fraubillenkreuz, Langenstein, Druidenstein) on the Ferschweiler Plateau, that are still in original position.

Those grand menhirs (standing stones) are the famous ones in Germany. Especially the Gollenstein, which is the largest one of these. Noone is sure what they were meant for. Some must have had cult importance. Prehistoric chiselers work indicates a matriarchal meaning on the Fraubillenkreuz.
The christianization left its marks, see also on the Fraubillenkreuz, or the Saulheim menhir.
