Devils stone near Bad Dürkheim
Devils stone near Bad Dürkheim

This stone gave name to the whole area. It is also called a sacrificial stone. On the top, cups are found, and artificial stairs are engraved like in the Pentagon stone, so the cultural importance is evident.

Some of these stones have special cultural history. Often, there are significant erratic stones, or cromlechs on exceptional places, that are shown here. Many are accompanied with saga and tales. As there are no written documents from the originating times, acquiring knowledge depends on local findings. Chemical analyses of the soil can shed light on cultural usage. Sometimes there are findings of prehistoric tools, i.e. flintstone knives.
