    "What is the customs hole anyway?
    Old Gelnhausers tell of a custom: When they came here with a basket of blueberries, they would pay the forest spirits a tribute (customs) in the form of some berries into the hole. Otherwise they ran the risk of the forest spirits tripping them on the Dürich (the steep ravine down to Gelnhausen's old town) and rolling their blueberries down the mountain. This custom could be traced back to the fact that customs were previously levied here. The customs hole is probably the base of a lost picture or ruler that used to stand at this crossroads. Millennia ago a trade route ran here, which was probably crossed by a second. So far, no written sources have been found as to whether there was a customs post here in the Middle Ages. Folding rules were set up on trade routes until around the middle of the 18th century, not only at borders, but also in strategic places. "
