The Lokomotive (German for “locomotive”) is a striking climbing rock north of Kurort Rathen in Saxon Switzerland in Germany. The rock, which resembles a steam locomotive in appearance, is also known as Große Ruine, is about 30 metres high and is divided into two parts: known as Lokomotive-Dom (“Locomotive Dome”) and Lokomotive-Esse (“Locomotive Chimney”). The ridge between the two is called the Kesselgrat (“Boiler Ridge”), the rock teeth next to the Esse as Pfeife (“Whistle”). For a short time there was a weather vane on the dome in the shape of a wheel. The Lokomotive rises on the massif of the Honigsteine.
