Katzensteine

Mechernich

In the "Mechernich Forest", which extends from the eastern city limits of Mechernich to Satzvey, the Katzensteine rise on the border with the Veybachaue near Katzvey.

The striking rock formation made of red sandstone natural rocks comes from a mighty river deposit that covered the entire Eifel approx. 220 million years ago. Over the course of millions of years, processes of uplift and subsidence in the earth's crust as well as rain, wind and frost have contributed to the current appearance. The resulting overhanging rocky areas offered natural protection from adverse weather conditions.
