    formerly a path castle, then a bastion for robbers and pioneers Definitely worth a visit

  • It was a nice resting place for us, only the view is missing. Maybe better when the dead pines are felled.

  • 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. [2] Archaeological investigations around 1900 revealed a Slavic or medieval use. The question of the function of the system could not be clarified. [3] 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.
