    Located on a very beautiful route from and towards Freusburg.
    The Catholics were buried in Niederfischbach and the Protestants in Freusburg.
    Hard to believe that the coffins were worn over such a long distance.
    Here the carrier change took place.

    Great paths, pure nature, on the way there it was only uphill but it went back only downhill. Nice place for a rest and enjoy nature.

    It's a little scary, what the old people did here back then.

    This tree was first mentioned in 1592 by Henry IV of Sayn.
    By his decree the deceased became
    Catholics from Freusburg to Niederfischbach
    buried in the churchyard next to the old parish church.
    The deceased Protestant Christians were buried in the chapel cemetery in Freusburg.
    When the porters reached that spot and made the most difficult stretch, they put the caskets under the old beech.
    Here then the carrier change took place. The Freusburger carriers took over the coffins of the Niederfischbacher and vice versa.
    Hats off to the porters who had to carry this far.
