Near the cyclop stones in the Aachen forest

The Cyclops's stones in the Aachen wood. Directly located on the Belgian border, highlight even today, in which in the last ice age ended once the icy ground. During earlier centuries nobody could explain itself how such gigantic stones had come to this place. So it could have been only Cyclops, these stones have brought here. Today families with children come with pleasure to this place. It is a miraculous adventure playground for children.
