Mountain Biking Highlight
The Hexentanzplatz is allegedly also an old Saxon cult place, at which v. a. were held on the night of May 1 to worship the so-called Hagedisen (forest and mountain goddesses) festivals. The place was only after the ban on the cult by the immigrant Christian Franks to Hexentanzplatz. According to tradition, the place was guarded to control the ban, by Franconian soldiers, who were chased away by witch-clad and batting Saxons. Another old cult place of the Saxons is on the Brocken.
