The Pfalz and Rhine Terrace Sights

Heidenmauer (literally, "heathen wall")

  • Archaeological Site/Ruins

Fodor's Review

One kilometer northwest of town lies the Heidenmauer, the remains of an ancient Celtic ring wall more than 2 km (1 mi) in circumference and up to 20 feet thick in parts. The remnants are on the Kastanienberg, above the quarry. Nearby are the rock drawings at Kriemhildenstuhl, an old Roman quarry where the legionnaires of Mainz excavated sandstone.
