The limestone of the Totenkirchl has been weathered over millions of years and, to me, bears a strange resemblance to one of those anatomical diagrams showing hand and foot joints, or a many hundreds of meters high whale skeleton. This is appropriate because the name “Totenkirchl” roughly translates as “Church of the Dead”, at least that´s my translation.

    • Thanks Richard!
      Yes the abstract form of the rocks gives that impression – they´re just hundreds of meters high :o)
