DE - Mechernich - Katzensteine / Cats Rocks

Another example for the simple fact that sometimes, you just need a little luck...

I had intended only to visit two castles, Burg Veynau and Burg Zievel, just a few kilometres apart. As I was not sure if my GPS knew both of them as points of interest, I looked up the map within Wikipedia to write down the respective street names just in case.

Somehow, I scrolled a bit too far and saw a point named "Katzensteine", linking to another Wikipedia entry.

I don't know how often I had taken the country road right next to these rocks before. Must have been at least half a dozen times, if not more. And I never had the faintest idea about this site. Took a little bit of going astray with the mouse cursor - lucky me...
