a natural place of spiritual power
There was probably never a castle here, but Celts and Romans already lived in this spiritual place. Because of the relatively large rubbles and stones, the Burgkopf was falsely held for the remains of a medieval castle until 1933. In the Gallo-Roman culture, the native fused with Roman gods. God Silvanus, who was equated with Sucellus, as lord of the woods was worshiped here by the Treverer, a Celtic tribe with Germanic roots, who settled in the surroundings of Trier. During excavations, three Gallo-Roman temples were discovered here.
