Great hiking and views. The site is very historic and the geological formation of the boulders is cool to see. It is possible to see stone cuts made into the boulders hundreds of years ago and a rock column with a defect left abandoned on the hillside. There is a small museum at the base of the trails. The hiking can be somewhat intensive on trails - and if taking shortcuts, be cautious of slippery stones and moss. If you are too lazy to hike to the top, there is also a sketchy one-lane road to access the top of the trails near the restaurant Ada's Buka but that road is sometimes closed.

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!

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.

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!

Fantastic day out for the whole family. Scrambling up the rocks with my grandson was a hoot !Nice cafe to seal the deal.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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
