A nice, personable local told me that the name "Galgenhohl" comes from the 30 Years War (1618-1648). At that time, enemy soldiers were tied up there and left hanging until the rope was through; - so the tradition.
The impressive walls of this ravine rise up to 13 meters. It bears its name because until 1770 a gallows erected on the height could be reached through it. Macabre history, but that also belongs to our country.
