A prehistoric rampart surrounds the cliffs, which are up to 10 m high. In 1841, Karl Benjamin Preusker suspected a pagan sacrificial site in the ramparts.  Archaeological investigations around 1900 revealed a Slavic or medieval use. The question of the function of the system could not be clarified.  Around 1350, the rocks are said to have served as a hiding place for a band of robbers, which is why the place was also called a robbery castle on old maps and is still called that in Sorbian today.
