    There is a parking lot at the gallows from which you can start beautiful tours

    The place of execution is referred to as a "three-sleeper gallows" because it consists of three sandstone pillars, which face each other in a triangle and are connected at the top with cross-connections. With this, several executions could be carried out at the same time last penance, for absolution for the wrongdoer

    The gallows were built in 1597 instead of a wooden gallows. The number of executed people is unclear, but there are some indications that relatively few people were killed there, which is probably also due to the relatively liberal jurisprudence of the Erbach count house.

    The place of jurisdiction. History was written here, if not beautiful.
    Best preserved gallows in Germany!

    ... probably one of the best preserved and declared place of execution in the region; This point is good to "install" in different tours on the Beerfelder Höhe

    Not a nice idea for theft of a chicken and two loaves of bread to end here.

    Hi, everyone! I have been hiking in the Beerfelder area several times: you can hike in all directions, it's beautiful everywhere! Direction Etzean e.g. where many stud farms can be seen, from there down to the Marbach - reservoir - this area is simply gorgeous! If you want to go further, you can then hike back via Hetzbach! Preferably with food, as you will be on the road for quite a while! Marion wishes you lots of fun and wonderful weather
