Gulde Thing Platz [Guly Thing]

The Guly Thing near Gulde... (pronounced 'Ting') A strange place, in my opinion. The people doing the rebuilding started with the 'reconstruction' of a THING place, but it came out like the stage for the next 'Conan the Barbarian' movie! A big number of mighty stones have been brought here from the surrounding area, and then set up to what looks like a round table with places for the eldest and the leaders.

The problem is, I have have never seen such a thing (= thing) as an original. Is this set up from pure fantasy and too much Hollywood?

Then I read the information boards, and they talk about the 'Power of the Stones', and that dowsers have found this place to be of positive influence (Geomanten).

Furthermore, they added more stony atrocities. There is a 'reconstructed' Dolmen, but this seems strange. I have seen a lot of the local Dolmen, but none look like this. It has a passage to the front, and all I have seen have passages at the long sides.

There is more: A grave with a Standing 'Rune' stone and stone rows at the sides.

To top it all: a big stone with the words 'WAHRHEIT GEHT VOR RECHT' ('Truth before Law', or 'First the truth, then the Law')

Also, you can have a nice barbecue at some stone tables, sitting on stone chairs.
