    Heathen Sacred Places in Germany

    For a trip to Germany I like to make a map of heathen places to visit.

    Are there any suggestions of which places one can visit?

    The cathedral stands on the site where the Anglo-Saxon missionary Saint Boniface, apostle of the Germans, in 724 erected a chapel from the wood of an oak dedicated to Donar and sacred to the local German tribe, the Chatten/Chatti (ancestors of the Hessians).

    Edit:

    One more interesting place

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Obermarsberg

    Very near Eresburg is Priesterberg, a hill overlooking the valley of the Diemel. This was reportedly the location of Pagan sacrificial rites in the pre-Christian era. It is also thought to be the home of Irminsul, a sacred tree or pillar which represented the Germanic central pillar of the world. In AD 772, Charlemagne destroyed the Irminsul on Priesterberg (elsewhere reported as "near Paderborn" or "near Eresburg"). The Irminsul was replaced by a stone structure, possibly a tower, the crumbling remains of which can still be seen.

    Externsteine, Germany

    The Externsteine are a distinctive rock formation located in Ostwestfalen-Lippe of northwestern Germany, not far from the city of Detmold at Horn-Bad Meinberg.[1] The formation is a tor consisting of several tall, narrow columns of rock which rise abruptly from the surrounding wooded hills. The name probably means "stones of the Egge", Egge meaning ridge.

    This book is supposed to be very good.

    I have The Modern Antiquarian by the same author and it's amazing!

    +1 for the Externstones. I visited there a couple of years ago with some friends on Hersirs advice and it didn't disappoint. It's amazing for being a site which has been in continuous ceremonial use for several thousand years through both pagan and christian periods.

    There's a gallery grave just outside of the village of Züschen near Fritzlar in the State of Hesse. I haven't been there and I doubt it's as good as the Externstones but might be worth a look if you happen to be passing.
    Close observation may result in feelings of horror, wonder and awe at world you find yourself inhabiting.

    Does it have colour photos? Have you visited any of the sites mentioned?

    It's not a stonehenge, since it is a natural formation, not a manmade one. It's use as a holy site though can only be proven for christian times, but then again, we never tended to let lay litter around, and we used holy sites as they were, while christians carved a mini-chapel into the stone. So just because there were no finds from pre-christian sacrifices doesnt necessarily mean there were none, or other forms of worship / feasts at the site. It's location in the Teutoburger Wald makes it save to assume that it was used as holy site in Heathen times already.

    It's a controversial place though, when you ask three people, you'll get 5 opinions and 10 theories, but it's quite certainly an impressive, and somewhat magic place which is worth a visit.


    Ocko: If you're in northern Germany, you can also go visit Hedeby / Heithabu, it's been a harbor in viking times, not exactly a holy site, but maybe interesting too. Around it you'll also find the Danevirke.

    But what I said above is generally the case, holy sites were either natural formations or forests, which makes it a bit difficult to locate major holy sites. The Teutoburger Wald, Osnabrück (Woden's place), Paderborn etc are well known to have a lot of holy sites, there's an Irminsul put up in Harbarnsen, although there might have been more than one, the page gives hints to possible places. I know you're into Leylines, maybe you can examine places worth to visit that way.

    Aller Sturm nimmt nichts, weil dein Wurzelgriff zu stark ist

    Most people think as they are trained to think, and most people make a majority.
