Gallighoog & Boikenhoog

The two Bronze Age burial mounds are prominently located on the Geest slope on both sides of the Jückersmarsch lowland.

The Frisian free hero Pidder Lüng is said to have been executed and buried on the Gallighoog (gallows hill) in 1518.

» According to legend, he now hikes every night as a Jückersmarschmann from Gallighoog to Boikenhoog and repeatedly calls on the undefeated hero Boh, who is resting there, to restore freedom and the Frisians' right to self-determination. «

A human skeleton is said to have been found in Gallighoog around 1880.
