Narrow crevasses and clefts in the rock, overgrown with mosses and lichens, huge rock towers, powerful blocks of stone with bizarre shapes caused by weathering - a wild, unspoilt landscape dominates the Ferschweiler plateau and the surrounding area.
Narrow crevasses and clefts in the rock, overgrown with mosses and lichens, huge rock towers, powerful blocks of stone with bizarre shapes caused by weathering - a wild, unspoilt landscape dominates the Ferschweiler plateau and the surrounding area. Towards the end of the last Ice Age - around 12,000 years ago - the change from frost and melt periods led to huge rockfalls on the edge of the plateau. A large sandstone block tipped out of the plateau wall, opening up a cleft in the rock which today is 28 meters deep, and which fascinates everyone who has walked through it. This is the “Teufelsschlucht”, or devil’s crevasse.
