Fuenfkantfelsen
Fuenfkantfelsen submitted by KaiHofmann : Fuenfkantfelsen, (possible, Ed.) menhir behind the Stiefeler Fels, height 3,4 meters. (Vote or comment on this photo)
The 3,4m tall Fünfkantfelsen (pentagonal at its base) stands in front of the "Stiefel" rock.

Note: Information regarding this object is contradictory and unfortunately there seemingly is no archaeological information available online. Non-scientific sources reference it either as „Menhir“ or as a natural rock formation like the nearby rock outcrop „Stiefel“ at a distance of 13,5m (ed.).
