Giezelbaarg - Vlagtwedde
On an old impounded hill on the meandering Ruiten-Aa is the Giezelbaarg, also known as Geselberg or Galgenberg. This is where, until 1803, sentences were carried out that were handed down in Burcht Wedde by the judges of Vlagtwedde and Bellingwolde.
Between 1587 and 1597, 22 men and women were burned alive here after being accused of witchcraft or sorcery. For them, on this hill, a monument has been erected with the names of the victims and the date of their execution.
