1. Felsenmeer

Show sight on map

The felsenmeer on the Felsberg above Lautertal-Reichenbach in the Vorderer Odenwald is a rocky landscape made of dark grey quartz diorite, which was created by wool sack weathering. The sea of rocks was already used by the Romans and later by the local stonemasons for stone extraction. The stonemasons referred to it as "Felsberg granite", which is no longer mined today. Today, the Felsenmeer is a popular local recreation area and excursion destination for families and hikers. It is located within the nature reserve "Felsberg bei Reichenbach". At the upper end of the Felsenmeer there is a small spring, whose trickle flows between the rocks down into the valley and finally flows into the Graulbach.
