Mountain Biking Highlight
Like the Winzenburg on the Rosstrappe, the Homburg served as a fleeing castle for the Germans. It was between 750 and 450 BC. Built BC and was protected by the immediately upstream rampart and the Sachsenwall. In the southern part of the rampart there is a gap and a ditch in front of it, behind the east wall there is a tunnel-like inner ditch.
At this point it seems that after the Christianization, Germanic customs and beliefs were secretly pursued, such as: B. the discovery of a sacrificial stone with a swastika in 1901.
In 1901 the Harz Club set up a lookout point on the Homburg site, which increasingly decayed after the Second World War. The control room was rebuilt in 1993 and can be climbed.Source: wikipedia.de
