The European culture trail leads around the Alteburg and into the Celtic period.
The Kasselgrund, which branches off from the Biebergrund near Biebergemünd-Kassel, is dominated by the prehistoric settlement site, the "Alteburg".
Even before and after the Celtic period, people settled there and left their traces.Route description:The cultural hiking trail begins at the car park of the "Kasselgrund" nature park, from Kassel out of town as an extension of the Villbacher Straße.
Through the Kasselgrund, with its numerous mills, one walks past the Günthersmühle, several kilometres through the forest, until one reaches the crossing of the "Seven Paths".
Experts believe that in the Celtic period the "Alteburg" was developed as a hilltop settlement of central importance (archaeologically verifiable) in terms of traffic geography.
What can be perceived today as a rampart was a technically elaborately designed wall in the Celtic period.
The local facial association has reconstructed a part of the castle fortification wall and archaeological finds prove life on the "Alteburg" since the Neolithic Age.
After a longer stay at the Celtic settlement, you walk around the hill until you reach the "Blue Quarry" with its basalt.
The hike ends again at the car park of the nature park.
