Großmugl’s Tumulus

The Leeberg Tumulus

Today we drove out to Stockerau to get some amazing vegan food at Schillinger and stopped by the Leeburg Tumulus in Großmugl. Here are a few photos I snapped around and on top of it. Of course it’s an extremely old burial mound and the largest in central Europe. If this was really built around 600-500 B.C. then it’s pretty insulting that someone put up a crucifix on top of it, as without even wondering what religion the people who are buried there might have subscribed to you can rest assured it wasn’t Christianity since that wouldn’t even be founded for almost a millennia.
