This is an interesting and ancient boulder field. You pay to park but can hike to the top with no charge. One can climb on the boulders from the bottom to the top. It takes a little effort but it is fun for young and old. Shoes with a bit of a grip helps when jumping from boulder to boulder.... More

Not only are the boulders spectacular, they are also accessible enough that we could let our grandsons 12 and 13 just climb around on them--which they loved. There are very steep trails and less steep trails around the boulders for those of us too old to climb on the rocks.

FELSENMEER is a blockfield (boulder field) with huge block sized rocks in all shapes and sizes lying around. This one is huge. It takes at least 30-40min to hike to the top at a quick pace. A more relaxed approach will take you up to an hour. The blockfield is sourrounded by woods. There is very little touristic infrastructure during... More

Didn't realize that this is a steep mountain climb up huge boulders. From pictures, I assumed it was more like a river bed. It's a strenuous climb, but my 5 year-old made it with the help of his big brother. I realize that it's very American of me, but I would have felt much safer with helmets on my kids.... More

This is well worth a visit - well-marked walks of varying lengths and lots to see and discover on the way - for adults and children. If you find some information on the area first before you arrive it will help you to understand what the Romans did in the area.

We were there this weekend. My five year old daughter loved climbing on the rocks. Very beautiful scenery. The view from up there is breathtaking.

The Felsenmeer is in Hesse, not Bavaria! Located on the continental divide, these rocks came to the surface when pushed up from the center of the earth millions of years ago. Climbing across them is quite an adventure when you keep their age in mind. Not often can you touch something that ancient.

Very nice place to spend time, also for kids. Possible to visit with a dog as well. More people within weekend.

Really cool place to get some fresh air after an international flight. There is a trail for those not up to the rock climb, but the climb is the best part! I recommend this attraction to those in search of a challenge or yearning for a leisurely walk in the woods.
