The basanite cliff, called Boniface Pulpit, presents itself as a rocky outcrop about 4 m high and 3 m wide, 10 m long. The column formation is strikingly beautiful. The arrangement of the columns suggests a passage-shaped breakthrough. The diameter of the mostly 5- or 6-cornered columns is mostly...

The Devil‘s Pulpit, whose platy formation is caused by flat-lying segregation joints, is an erosional edge. Steeply standing fissures determine its morphological shape. The material is a basalt, which is presumably a lava flow originating from the higher Oberwald. The Devil‘s Pulpit is a natural ...
