The stone table

The stone table was inaugurated in 1888 as a resting place with an open view under the high beech canopy. It was built by a group of students from Greifswald University.

Coinciding with the award of the title "Seebad" (seaside resort) to Heringsdorf on 4 June 1879 by Kaiser Wilhelm I, a dense network of rambling and bridle paths was created. In order to increase the attractiveness of the forest, special monuments were created as excursion destinations, like the stone table. Even today this a popular destination for excursions and is used for forest concerts.
