    As a witch dance place in the time of the witch hunts in Europe many places were designated, at which the accused of the witch trials allegedly met for secret meetings. Occasion should have been for example the witches Sabbath in the Walpurgisnacht. It was believed that magicians or witches had gathered there with the devil on the so-called mountains or parcels.The judges requested in the witch trials of the defendants the exact list of the visited devil punching places (ie an exact place of participation in the Witches' Sabbath) and a denunciation (denunciation) of the names of other participants of the meetings. These denounced people were then arrested and charged, and there were the so-called chain processes with many executions.

    Greater crossroads - a pity that there is no sign indicating how the square once came to be named.
