Beisenerbierg Menhir
Beisenerbierg Menhir submitted by Alta-Falisa : Standing Stone of Béisenerbierg, and welcoming cows. August 2016. (Vote or comment on this photo)
3 Meter tall menhir on top of a hill. The menhir is a replica. The original is to be seen in the museum of arts and archaeology in the centre of the city of Luxembourg.

You can park your car in front of the chapel. Then pass the chapel on the left side. You see there billboards with information about the menhir. Walk along and through a narrow passage you will find a small path that leads directly to the menhir on the top of the hill.

Re: Beisenerbierg Menhir by Anonymous on Tuesday, 13 June 2023
Hello. I'm the archaeologist who dig this standing stone in 2001. Important notice: the stone you can see on the hill is the real one. We made a replica for the museum of history and art in the city center of Luxembourg, but we leaved the real one on the hill ;)

Best Regards,

By the way. This menhir is a replica. The original is to be seen in the museum of arts and archaeology in the centre of the city of Luxembourg.

    You have to enter and cross the chapel-yard. From there you find a securised path and information-panels about the Menhir
