In the middle of the village, the 160 foot high Rappen rock towered on a steep slope. It can be called the landmark of Hinterweidenthal. God knows, they put a church tower on Rappenfelsen on the gray head. A strange headgear indeed! The old beloved tower was put up there (the top of the tower on the rock is meant again) because you could not separate yourself from the sight of it ... It is also a memorial to the peace of 1866.
