#deinsauerland / Outdooractive POIs / Piles, ramparts, deserts - 11.Landwehr

Landwehrs are ramparts that served to protect and defend territories in the Middle Ages. They consisted of at least one earthen wall with ditches on both sides.




To ward off cattle thieves and other intruders, the ramparts were planted with impenetrable thorny bushes. Thus, travelers were forced to use the official long-distance routes and to pay tolls at the passages secured with turnpikes.
