Devil's Table

Hinterweidental, Germany

Once upon a time, the devil traveled through the Pfälzer Wald, the biggest forest in Germany.
In the evening he became tired and hungry but, unfortunately, could not find a place to sit down for dinner.
Grabbing two big slices of rock, he created his own table and chair.
The locals were shocked when they discovered it the next day — and even to this day people come from miles away to see it.

Parents tell this tale to their children when they visit the Teufelstisch, or “Devil’s Table,”
a natural monument in the middle of the Pfälzer Wald south of Kaiserslautern.
Created by erosion through millions of years, the table is a big sandstone plate resting on two narrow columns of rock.
It weighs 300 tons, and is the most famous rock formation in the Pfälzer Wald.
