Steinernes Meer (D)

Schwarzenberg am Böhmerwald, Oberösterreich , Österreich

Impressive stone dumps as a place to stay

If you cross the Steinerne Meer, you are involuntarily worried about how well this bizarre rock world may have originated.

The Mühlviertel consists predominantly of crystalline rocks of the Bohemian mass and was once a mighty mountain range of 5,000 meters in the Palaeozoic era. Erosion eroded the former high mountains to their roots.

Although the Šumava had only small Kargletscher during the last ice ages, arctic permafrost conditions led to the formation of frost debris and the characteristic block seas: the fine rock constituents were washed away and the large, edgy blocks remained lying.

The Steinerne Meer can be reached either from Oberschwarzenberg via the Nordwaldkammweg or from the Dreisesselberg (Germany) and offers hikers a wonderful place to rest with a wonderful panoramic view of the magnificent landscape of the Bohemian Forest region.

Depending on the snow conditions, the Steinerne Meer will be visible from the end of May.
