The Galgenberg is a Bronze Age burial mound that served as a place of execution for the Itzeho monastery district in the Middle Ages and early modern times. The three lower tombs were covered with a dome-shaped hall after the excavation in 1937.

Since the graves were mistakenly thought to be the burial place of a Germanic peasant clan, the site is also called a Germanic grave.
