Fun with boulders
Aug 2020 • Family
It’s a river of rocks and boulders on the slope of the hill. It’s fun to climb and scrape all around. It’s surrounded by forest, so you can have some shade when you pause. There is a trail without stones that criss-crosses the “river”, so you can save your ankles. There are refreshments stands at the bottom and near the top, to get that chilled bier or cola.
Super fun!

Excursion destination for families with children
Jun 2020
Easily accessible by car, a nice trip for families with children. The children can climb on the stones and have a lot of fun.
At the bottom of the entrance, by the parking lot, there are toilets and kiosks.
In addition to the path up over the rocks, you can also use the path from the side.
There can be a large crowd on weekends.

Nice, but for adults there are nicer places in nature, I think.

A place from my childhood memories!

I spent a lot of time in this place, walking up the hill for hours just to get to the rocks. Beautiful and unique. This is a place I still talk about when I explain the movement of the Romans though Germany back in the 3 and 4 centuries!

Really fun!

Had a great time there, just be careful when getting down if you are using the paths on the sides of the rocks. They can be a bit slippery, especially if it rained.

a bunch of rocks - and a lot of fun
Jun 2019 • Friends
I went to the Felsenmeer as a teenager and wanted to revisit when I was in the area. Exactly as I remember! - after all, a bunch of rocks don't change much. It costs 4 Euro to park the car - for a 12 hour period. There is a walkway around, so you don't have to climb if you don't want to. I didn't climb all the way to the top. It was a lot of fun climbing up and down the rocks - but be careful, you can get hurt if you don't pay attention. Definitely wear sturdy, comfortable shoes, bring water, and a camera.

There is a restaurant at the bottom. We didn't go, but the menu offered standard German fare at very reasonable prices. Also, there are quite a few hiking trails.

I saw a lot of families with small children - young and old. Can get sunny, so you may want to bring sunscreen.

Natural wonder of the Odenwald
Aug 2018 • Family
This is an amazing place. Set in idyllic scenery (Lautertal) it is a popular haunt for families at the weekend. Take a small back pack with plenty of water and some energy bars, park the car at the bottom and walk up. My little boy (6) loved scrambling around on the boulders and raced his friend to the bridge. We adults took our time, taking in the scenery. The facilities are good. There are two big parking lots, one at the top and one at the bottom. There is a building museum at the bottom and a kiosk at the top, as well as a restaurant with beer garden.
The history of the place is also fascinating, apparently the Romans used it as a quarry.
Those with small kids would probably aim for the bridge, others can try the whole trek. You can also take walking the path around the edge if you get tired of the boulders. Well worth a visit.

River of Rock
Aug 2018 • Family
We love coming to Felsenmeer. Park in the lot, pay 4 euro to the meter and your off. Bring lots of water. Wear sports shoes. A WC is located in the building museum on your right, cost.50 cents. The climb is so much fun. Take your time and enjoy the wonder. A kiosk at the top has drinks, wurst and candy. At the very top is a bathroom and a parking lot.

Lots of fun

My kids loved scrambling around the boulders. Great facilities including a restaurant with beer garden and kiosk. It’s a long way from the car park at the bottom to the top...so take your time and take on the scenery

Very good place
Jul 2017 • Friends
I visited this place about one month ago, but stll I have impressions about it.
We climbed about 1 km and I admit that it was hard, but it was a big relief, when I got to the top and I could realised how big distance I overcame. I liked it very much.
If you want to visit this place it's better for you to wear sport clothes or somethink like this. Also I would recommend you to take minimum things with you, so it will be easy for you to climb and a lot of water :)
If you feel tired, you can use another way to "climb" - there is a path on the right of begining.
At the top there are some Ancient greek columns.
Good luck :)
