Barskamp Opferberg

Round Barrow in Lower Saxony.

This is the 'Opferberg' in the 'Schieringer Forst', close to a very impressive Long Barrow. The translation would be "Sacrifice Hill"

On the top there is a tree with a "face" and you wonder if it talks sometimes.

Most likely this is a Round Barrow, that was used later for cultic rituals.
