Hünenburg , Hunneburg , Hunnenburg , Hunburg , Hunnenring , Hünenschanze or Hunnenschanze are popular names for prehistoric and early historical fortifications, mostly ramparts or refuges . However, the name is not a reference to the Huns . When in the late Middle Ages the real story was forgotten and given the stone masses of the fortifications, it was assumed that giant would have needed to build them.

“In Schaumburg, legends of giants are often linked to outstanding round hills; Everyone here knows what a giant is, also that the giant castles and Hünenbrinke were created when a giant poured the sand out of his shoes. "

- Karl Lyncker : 1854
