Schnathorster mountain

The Schnathorster Berg (also Eickhorster Berg ) is a 246.6 meter high mountain in the Wiehen Mountains . It lies on the border between the East Westphalian communities of Hille and Hüllhorst in the Minden-Lübbecke district .

The Schnathorster Berg lies between the eponymous localities Schnathorst in the south and Eickhorst in the north. In popular parlance, however, the mountain also bears two names on hiking maps, as mentioned above, with the inhabitants south of the Wiehengebirge preferring the name Schnathorster Berg and north of this ridge-like mountain range the name Eickhorster Berg .

Like almost all mountains in the Wiehengebirge, the Schnathorster Berg has an elongated ridge summit (Egge) and is only separated from the peaks to the west and east by Dören . Therefore, the mountain is only partially perceived as a prominent peak.

There is a trigonometric point at the top . The Oberlübber mountain lake is 900 meters east of the summit . 300 meters west of the summit, the L803 country road, is one of the few pass roads that cross the eastern Wiehen Mountains. The pass height is here at 208 meters above sea level. NN. In the last third of the 20th century there was a brothel known throughout the region, known as the Mount of Olives and harmlessly recorded on hiking maps as a farmer's coffee. The operation was set there 1,999th The building burned down on May 20, 2004 and was only a ruin until it was demolished in 2009. The pass road is still commonly called the Mount of Olives today. Before that until the 1960s, there was a dance hall there, popularly called Depping . Young people from Oberlübbe , Eickhorst , Nettelstedt and Schnathorst met for the dance on Sunday . An attraction was the hall attached to the inn.

In the 1960s the “Waldfrieden” was used as a night club. Only then did the term Mount of Olives arise . The exact cause of the fire could not be determined.
