The Hochstein is a vulcano in the Eifel. It is placed between Ettringen and Bell. Near the top of the mountain is a cave where legend is been told.
The countess Genoveva of Brabant was accussed to commit adultery. She was condemned to death by her husband. But the hunter was had to kill her, spared her life. She lifed in a cave until she was able to proof her innocence.
