Menhir - Benzingerode
Menhir - Benzingerode

Significant column in wide plane: the menhir of Benzingerode is the most famous one of now three known menhirs in a close neighborhood. The Hünenstein is within walking distance.

Those grand menhirs (standing stones) are the famous ones in Germany. Especially the Gollenstein, which is the largest one of these. Noone is sure what they were meant for. Some must have had cult importance. Prehistoric chiselers work indicates a matriarchal meaning on the Fraubillenkreuz.
The christianization left its marks, see also on the Fraubillenkreuz, or the Saulheim menhir.
