    Here you will find the legacy of our ancestors, who have made sandstone columns on site. The columns, which had already cracked during production and thus became unstable, left the stonemasons simply lying.

    Impressive eyewitnesses. The columns were completely hewn by hand and then brought down to the valley.

    Two hewn sandstone pillars were planned for the Mainz cathedral construction and were painstakingly hewn out of sandstones. Since one pillar was torn when it was hewn, the removal of both pillars has been dispensed with and since then they have been lying in the forest of Bürgstadt.

    Two columns that were once carved. Due to a fault in the rock, one of them cracked and was left behind

    The hay barrels are two stone pillars hewn out of the sandstone, which were probably supposed to be built into the Mainz Cathedral. Since one of the two pillars broke when it was hewn, both pillars were simply left behind and no longer transported away.

    To make such an effort and simply let the result lie. Definitely thought-provoking.

    What people were able to achieve without machines back then are very impressive.

    Incomplete processing of columns from probably Roman times.
