Externsteine in Autumn - Externsteine im Herbst

The landmark of the Externsteine in Northern Germany is said to be a sacred site since ancient times. A group of free standing rock pillars, rising up to 45 meters, is attracting ten thousands of tourists every year.

In this image, the main group of rocks is seen from the side. The rock on the right side (on tolp) is called "Wackelstein" - "Wobbling Stone" - it has been fastened with iron clamps. There's a saying that if this rock ever falls down, it will slay the last princess of the Lippe nobility, to whom the Externsteine once belonged.

Flattr this!
