    Two memorial plaques along the “Hiwweltour Bismarck Tower” remind of the history of the Gau-Algesheimer Kopf and the Westerberg during the First World War. The infantry positions still preserved from this time are among the very little preserved fortresses of their kind in Germany.

    Interesting display in this regard in two different places on the Hiwweltour. The link behind the QR code no longer exists, but it is easy to find it on the Internet.
    Brief summary: Before and during the First World War, one of the most important fortresses in the west of the German Empire was built in Mainz and Rheinhessen, with great secrecy. This stretched from Ingelheim via Mainz to Nierstein and led along many towns in the Rhine-Hesse region. The fortress consisted of 14 large forts as well as more than 350 modern fortifications, storage areas, waterworks, telecommunication stations as well as its own railway network and a rack railway. After the First World War, the fortress was razed and blown up.
    (Demolition usually refers to the demolition of castles or fortifications by the losing party in a military conflict. It is carried out by removing, leveling, blasting or tearing down. Only rarely was the complex completely destroyed in this process.)

    The information boards make you aware of how well we have been since the end of World War II. The positions were built to prepare for World War I 100 years ago. Shortly thereafter came the 2nd World War.
