An der Teufelsmauer - HFF!

An der Teufelsmauer - HFF! 

From Wikipedia (Deutsch and English):
Die Teufelsmauer im Landkreis Harz in Sachsen-Anhalt ist eine aus harten Sandsteinen der oberen Kreide bestehende Felsformation im nördlichen Harzvorland, die auf etwa 20 km Länge von Ballenstedt über Rieder und Weddersleben bis nach Blankenburg (Harz) verläuft. Zahlreiche herausragende Einzelfelsen tragen Eigennamen. Die Teufelsmauer bei Weddersleben wird auch Adlersklippen genannt.

Viele Sagen und Mythen haben sich gebildet, um die Besonderheit dieses Ortes erklärbar zu machen. Er wurde daher bereits 1833 sowie 1852 durch den Landrat unter Schutz gestellt, um den Abbau des begehrten Bausandsteins zu unterbinden. Die Teufelsmauer bei Weddersleben ist seit 1935 als Naturschutzgebiet Teufelsmauer und Bode nordöstlich Thale ausgewiesen und zählt damit zu den ältesten Naturschutzgebieten Deutschlands.

---

The Teufelsmauer (Devil's Wall) is a rock formation made of hard sandstones of the Upper Cretaceous in the northern part of the Harz Foreland in central Germany. This wall of rock runs from Blankenburg (Harz) via Weddersleben and Rieder to Ballenstedt. The most prominent individual rocks of the Teufelsmauer have their own names. The Teufelsmauer near Weddersleben is also called the Adlersklippen ("Eagle Crags").

Many legends and myths have been woven in order to try to explain the unusual rock formation. It was placed under protection as early as 1833 and, in 1852, by the head of the district authority in order to prevent quarrying of the much sought-after sandstone. The Teufelsmauer near Weddersleben has been protected since 1935 as a nature reserve and is thus one of the oldest nature reserves in Germany.
