Stone Circle in Hesse

This Stone Circle was build approx. 40 years before on a middle-age judgement place. This very beautiful location is situated between the river Weser and a nature reservoir. From this point you have a fine view to the River and Abbey Hilwartshausen. In the past grazy youngster rolled the stones down to the river. Forrest Ranger put them back and cemented the stones in place. I found this place and the information to this site on this page (German-Info): http://www.stonehenge.brain-jogging.com/hessen.htm
