Neerstedt Hexenstein[770 x 670 jpg]

|Description ||View from above showing main part of the panel. The surface is overgrown by lichen, but shows at least 20 (other sources say 30 and there obviously were several more) weathered cup-marks from the Neolithic or Bronze age. |
Size and depth varying.
4 cupmarks are in a square-like arrangement.
“Hexenstein” means “Stone of the Witch” / “Witch's Stone”.
Rock art is comparatively rare in this area and mainly limited to cup-marks. Nevertheless an impressive site.

| Due to lichen growth, heavy weathering and a slightly undulating surface it is very hard to bring out all the smaller cupmarks (at the same time), but at least this might give an idea that the original number was by far larger than 20 or 30.|
