The Pagan Sites of Europe Remembered (27): Harzburg Castle

There is strong but confusing evidence that Harzburg Castle in Germany was once an important pagan site.

Given the extent of the cultural genocide committed against European Paganism by the Abrahamic religion, and in light of the fact that Pagans sacralized almost any important geographical feature, this means that there is a practical certainty that Harzburg was in fact an important Pagan site, even if this is now conveyed to us through garbled and imprecise sources.

Harzburg Castle is the most prominent site in Bad Harzburg, a spa town that lies at the Northern edge of the Harz Mountains in Saxony. These mountains are not particularly high, with the highest point being 3,743 feet.
