Badenheim Gallows Hill
Place of horror, poetry and pleasure
Was this really the place of execution for the condemned in the Middle Ages? Well visible, on a hill, at the border of the district - that would fit. However, numerous hills bear the name Galgenberg in German usage. They would not be the only graves in Badenheim: One found in a Celtic-Roman grave field (300.B.C.-100n.C.) a precious sword as grave gift, furthermore 81 graves of the Merovingians. In addition, Isaak Maus (1748-1833) from Badenheim rests in the cemetery. He published several volumes of poetry and was in contact with renowned poet colleagues. It is best to find out for yourself whether the wines are poetically right. Silvaner or Portugieser from Galgenberg bring fullness and aromaticity.
