|Reconstructed Celtic buildings @ Heuneburg|
The site was first discovered in the 1820s but serious excavation didn't start before 1950. Today there are reconstructions of several houses and of part of the clay brick wall which can be visited.

The Celts not only mastered the extraction of bronze, gold and, above all, iron, they were also talented armourer and goldsmiths, as many excavations confirm.
From the Heuneburg it was not far to the Federsee, a big moor and natural reserve, which you can explore on a 1,5 km long boardwalk. But even more interesting was the archeological museum about 15.000 years of settlement around the lake.
