On the hike through the Mai- und Brandenbusch at experience point no. 1, you will find yourself exactly on the former border of the archbishoprics of Trier and Cologne.

You will find this in the adjoining copse via a meadow path at its head - an apparently uninteresting mighty mound of earth, but in a way it has "it in it". It is the burial place of a tribal or clan prince, who is estimated to have been buried here between 600 and 500 B.C. within a wooden plank chamber covered with soil. People of his rank are known to have been given their ceremonial chariots in their graves, under which they were usually laid to rest. Individual graves of his followers were found nearby in the middle of the 19th century, during the construction of a road to Daun, but associated traces of settlement are still covered by the detritus of history.

On your hike "Witches, Hangmen & Scoundrels", experience point 1 is the "barrow" right at the start of the hike.
