    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.

    Celtic ring wall from pre-Christian and early Christian times.
    You have to fight off a real threat if you take this huge job!

    Even today is still true: Caution when crossing! Off the stone stairs you can quickly injure the bones

    At this depression in the course of the Celtic ring wall parts of the gate system were reconstructed. A blackboard informs about the details.

    Overwhelming and immediately astonished what it must have been like for such an achievement to have built such a huge ring at this time.
    Great view from the top.
    Perfect to extend the tour around the Nonnweiler dam.

    Allegedly, the so-called Northwall can also be seen from outer space.
