Kaiser Karls Bettstatt


Share content:

According to the legend, Emperor Charles the Great had become lost in the High Fens during a hunting excursion near his residence in Aachen and was forced to spend the night on this large quartzite rock. The rock, near the town of Mützenich, situated immediately on the German-Belgian border, is still quite commonly referred to as: Kaiser Karl’s Bettstatt. Situated directly on the High Fens, this is an especially popular picnic spot for hikers that has a small protective hut and several seating opportunities all around the stone.
