Jungfraustein natural monument "JUNGFRAUSTEIN"
The "Jungfraustein" is an interesting historical natural monument. The two mighty Wacker stones have been shaped by the weather in such a way that the upper stone can be moved effortlessly with one hand, but its position cannot be changed even with great effort.
According to legend, three giant maidens brought the stones here in their aprons. In Celtic and Germanic times, the stone structure is said to have served as a place of worship. The Roman road passes not far from the Jungfrau stone. The Romans probably used this high route to bypass the then still marshy Natternbach valley basin on their way to the Danube.
Until 1779 - when the Innviertel region became part of Austria - the Roman road was part of the border between Austria and Bavaria. Today it still forms the border between the Innviertel and the Hausruckviertel as well as between the districts of Schärding and Grieskirchen. In the immediate vicinity of the Jungfrausteine are two boundary stones from the time of the ecclesiastical manorial lordships with the dates 1691 and 1731 respectively. The lordship of Vichtenstein extended into the parish of Natternbach.
