    Ruin of a village church. Here was the settlement of Gosselndorf, first mentioned in 1183, but then abandoned around 1312.
    There is also a legend about the "funeral procession at the Gießlingskirche": farmhands, actually arranged to meet at dawn, erroneously left around midnight because the night was unusually bright to start their work. A glow of light could be seen in the ruin, organ playing could be heard. Then a funeral procession emerged from the remains of the wall, a dead man was carried on a bare, others ran in rows behind, holding their own heads in their hands. Well, and it goes a little further. I will now save that. ;) Allegedly, you can still see the light from the freeway, but what are certainly young people who celebrate a little there.
    Definitely a place where you can stop for a moment.

    So far only seen from the motorway, today explored by bike, a place steeped in history.
