Long Description:
This place was known nationally after the Second World War.
In 1955 this was achieved by Otto Fischer von Niederrimsingen, the board of the WG board, with a successful April schoon with the alleged discovery of the Attila's grave under a rock at the Tuniberg.
Its April fish goes back to a traditional local custom, according to which Attila the Hun was killed in combat near the Tuniberg and buried in a precious coffin.
It is with this joke that the name of the "Rock of Attila" (DE: Attilafelsen) is developed.
