    Der Aussichts- und Ausflugspunkt in der Region. Am Parkplatz Nähe der Straße kostenlos parken und der Ausschilderung folgen. Leichter Hügel mit Steilküste und grandiosem Ausblick aufs Meer & Steinen.

    A sunrise/sunset calendar that still works. On top of stone 8 (counted anti-clockwise from the rear) you find 4 small cup marks that are a miniature replica of the whole thing.
