Table Mountains: Widdebierg / Kréckelsbierg

07_NA_AV (6)

The name “Kréck­els­bierg” derives from the name of the lit­tle blue fruits of the today rare wild Plumtree.

The Wid­de­bierg and the Kréck­els­bierg are 2 table moun­tains, sit­u­at­ed in front of the Lux­em­bourg Sand­stone lay­er on the east­side of the Grünewald, relat­ed by a high step in the ter­rain. With a height of almost 386 m above the sea lev­el they are ris­ing above the undu­lat­ed Late Tri­as­sic land­scape and the Syrdall.

They are form­ing an impor­tant drink­ing water reserve. The waters emerg­ing from the sides are part­ly used for drink­ing water supply.

This is the Roman bronze fig­urine, found on the exca­va­tion site, rep­re­sent­ing a preda­tor attack­ing an ostrich.

The roman dis­cov­er­ies that had been found on the site (espe­cial­ly the Roman sanc­tu­ary) gave the Wid­de­bierg also a high archae­o­log­i­cal importance.
