Devil's Table (Teufelstisch)

The Devil's Table is an intriguing 14 metre high rock formation in the Palatine Forest. It's can be easily seen from the German B 10 road.

This natural monument consists largely of interbedded sand, silt and claystones. The shape of the Devil's Table and its thin pillars is defined by pre-existing fractures at the upper and lower end of the monument. The block on the top protects the remaining pillars of less resistant material from further erosion.

The Devil's Table is part of the Dahn Rockland area and it's easily accessible from the Erlebnispark Teufelstisch car park in Hinterweidenthal, Germany.
