    The Mapper ski jump is a well-preserved gate fortification of the Rheingau region - one of the strongest medieval land forces in Germany.The Rheingau Brueck consisted essentially of a 50-meter-wide fouling strip, which was formed from closely set grove or beech bushes. Their young shoots were bent down (bent) to the ground and intertwined to form an impenetrable natural barrier.

    Here you can still see how the Gebück used to look like and the gate towers in between

    Highly recommended in summer as the trails are all shaded ...
