The Wilzenberg, called the Holy Mountain of the Sauerland, is with its 658 m altitude one of the most striking mountains of the Rothaargebirge and not only a place of pilgrimage between county and Winkhausen but also a pagan place of worship with visible ramparts. On this legendary mountain in the early Middle Ages a Wallburg and a Fliehburg are said to have stood. Next to the big summit cross, there is a crucifixion group with many benches in front of the Freialtar, as well as the Marienkapelle, Stations of the Cross and two other small chapels.

Wonderful to read the historical landscapes.
Also on the Wilzenberg. Two ring walls can be found here in the landscape.
The location where the highlight was created is where you can clearly recognize the historic Ringwal in the landscape. A wide trench, a remnant of the ring wall around the castle from the 10th century, served to protect the medieval castle.
