02 The Grave of the Princes of Elm-Sprengen (D)

Elm-Sprengen

A fascinating view into the wagon grave of the princes of Elm-Sprengen. The grave dating from the Hallstatt period (around 500BC) found in a wood near Köllerbach has been reconstructed. Excavations in 1991/92 revealed the remains of a four-wheeled wagon and a golden earring that indicates the social position of the corpse. The 11.5km Celtic trail runs along the hillside graves – experience the mysterious Celtic woods.
