Of the  Hohmichele  is a celtic  princely burial mound  the late  Hallstatt period

With a diameter of 85  m and a height of 13.5  m is the  barrow  one of the largest in Central Europe.

For more than 12 months we observed the Heuneburg, the Hohmichele and the "Alte Burg" and documented them at different times of the year. The burial mounds, many of them in the forest or in open fields, can hardly be seen in summer. Only the snow and the flat sun with its long shadows can make the elevations visible.
