Location Aue-Wingeshausen - View to the hillfort Aue


The hillfort Aue dates back to the Iron Age. It is situated at an altitude of 599 metres and overlooks the Eder valley. The castle is one of the few prehistoric legacies in Wittgenstein. It marks the beginning of the hillfort phenomenon, which means that according to current research it is one of the oldest hillforts in South Westphalia.

Archaeologists assume that this hillfort was settled by a previously unnamed people. This is because during excavations, scientists have found clear signs of settlement such as pottery vessels, millstones and spinning whorls, which indicate that people lived there. Weapons were also found, for example two iron spout devices, a flat nose pliers, a spear point and a spout lance point. These findings indicate a religious rite, as the points were all pointed to the east when they were found.

At present, research is still done on the ancient site, which will certainly provide further exciting insights into the traces from the Iron Age in the coming years. The hillfort Aue is already a popular destination for hikers.
