At the foot of the 1000 Eimer Berg (1000 bucket mountain), I entered the cemetery of
Spitz. In good years, it was said that 1000 buckets of grapes could be harvested from
the vineyards on this mountain. The entrance tower to the cemetery was once a
Protestant chapel destroyed by the Catholic forces. Each grave has a little flower
garden. It was nice to walk from grave to grave – a feast of colors and smells. I
recognized many names on the crosses and gravestones.
