Hiking Highlight (Segment)
The ring wall of Otzenhausen is a mighty Celtic fortification on the slope of the Dollberg near Otzenhausen. Like other pre-historic or early-historical fortifications, it was popularly misleadingly called a Hunnenring. Archaeologists, however, date their origins to the La Tène period (5th-1st century BC). The term was first created in modern times, when you did not know anything about the genesis, the building has nothing to do with the Asian tribe.
At Keltenpark, at the foot of the Otzenhausen ring wall, a "real" Celtic village is being built, as it might have looked 2,000 years ago inside the mighty fortress on top of the Dollberg. The reconstruction of an authentic Celtic settlement is an integral part of the emerging Celtic Park.
The Celtic rampart wall is freely accessible and can be visited all year round.
