Menhir tip in Martinshöhe
Menhir tip in Martinshöhe

This is just the tip of a menhir, but is still nearly 3 meters high. It has been moved from the town center to its actual place beside the water towers.

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.
