In 782, a battle took place in the valley between the ancient Germanic tribes of Germans and the Franks under the leadership of Charles the Great. The Franks won and forcibly baptized the vanquished. After this, the rocks lost their meaning as a pagan place of worship. Now, around the rocks flows the stream "Blutbach" (Bloody stream), which reminds of those events.
