Full description
The Heiligenberg, an old Celtic ring wall, a mysterious ritual and the ruins of a monastery are the ingredients for this atmospheric adventure. Immerse yourself in the history of one of the oldest urban areas in the region, whose remains await you deep in the woods. If the story of the black rider doesn't scare you, prepare to be spooked by the spirits of a "headless" woman from the time of the Crusades, mutinous monks and a mysterious crypt, where you'll find the ghosts of three monks murdered one stormy night. Follow the grand ducal woodsman Hubertus Heimbold on his hunt through the "terrifying" forest and hear stories of eerie happenings and historical events.

    The spark just didn't jump over.

    There was never any talk of witch dance or monk murder. The tour was boring and historically not very informative. Too bad I had hoped for more.
