The mysterious 'Heathen Hole' (or 'Heidenloch') in Germany. This is a 55-meter deep, pre-historic, man-made shaft, located on the Heiligenberg mountain near to the lookout tower pictured in my previous post. The origins and reasons for this massive hole are unknown, although it is believed to possibly date back to when the Celts occupied the mountain around the 4th Century BC. What is known is that excavations of the hole have dated it to being built prior to 1100AD.
Over the centuries there have been many reports of mysterious and supernatural experiences around the Heathen Hole. In 1606, a text from a Swiss pastor even suggested that Satan once sat in the Heathen Hole! 👹
To add to the mystery, in 1907 strange creatures were reported to have come out of the Heathen Hole, resulting in a number of deaths. The incident was apparently covered up until an x-file of the incident was published in the year 2000.
So what is the hole for? Why would pre-historic people go to so much effort, and risk, to dig such a deep hole in the mountain? Some suggest that it was an attempt to dig down to the river at the base of the mountain, to bring water up to the hilltop settlements. However, others suggest a more sinister past - that it was used for sacrificial ceromonies! What do you think it was for?
To find out more about the Heathen Hole, check out episode 6 of Ghost Chasers where we investigated the hole... with some surprising results! 👻 Ghost Chasers series 1 is available on @uktvplay and @watchinsighttv (And yes that is me walking over the hole filming on my phone - we were given permission to do so first! If you go there, don't try it yourself! 😬) Video copyright @paulhobday
