|Description ||There are some stories attached. |
One day a young farmer missed one of his cows, a white one. He looked for it inside this forest. There he met the goddess 'Harke'... and fall in love. She explained to him, that he has to die if he wanted to love her. He couldn't resist, but he asked her for a good burial. She promised to bury him so safely, nobody would be able to disturb his peace.
So it happened, and when his friends looked after him, they found this big stone.
Years later, a man was hired to cut the stone in pieces. But when he prepared to split the stone, the heavens went dark, thunder came and lightning struck.
The guy ran for his life, and nobody ever touched the Harkestein again.
