The legend about the origin of the "Felsenmeer":

Once upon a time there were two giants: "Felsenhocker" and "Steinbeißer" whose empires were separated by the Odenwald. One day they got into a terrible argument and started throwing rocks at each other. Since "Steinbeißer" had more material to throw, "Felshocker" was soon buried under the boulders; allegedly you can still hear him roar occasionally under them.

It’s time for a hike! 🚶‍♂🚶‍♀ Before the semester starts we want to spend a day with you in the nature. 🌳🌄 Together with the ISS we’ll scale the rocks of Felsenmeer and as we reach the rocks, reward ourselves with a picnic. 🧺 It is a very typical activity for families to do “feiertags” and on weekends and we thought we would do the same with you, our Erasmus family. 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦 Maybe together we’ll hear the „Felshocker“ roaring. 😉

We will start our trip at the train station in Bensheim and walk to the Felsenmeer, which will be a 3-4 hour hike. However, there are busses running back to the train station - you don't have to walk all the way back. At the bottom of the Felsenmeer we will have our picnic and strengthen ourselves for the last accent... up the rocks.
