Otzenhausen - Nonnweiler

This rampart is very impressive by the mass of erratic rocks lined up around the castle area.

These ruins are from ancient ramparts and parpets, built by the Celts to help against the Hun that were dwelling from the East with their little horses. Those ramparts originated at one end of a hill saddle, and were often supported by rock faces. Today they are all moldered, because the scree was fixed with wooden stakes which decayed.
