hunnerberg is a residential area and gypsum reservoir located on the banks of the river. The location along the wheels makes this low mountain, like the proximity of the head plateau, a very strategic location. This can be seen in many archaeological discoveries, including two Roman castras, which include Roman aqueducts, and many discoveries in the late Neolithic Age, Bronze Age and late Middle Ages. The fort excavated during construction appears to have been built on the remains of the Tenth Legion camp. In their mountainous areas, the streets are named after cities such as Charm, Yugni Lucker and Klass North Rhine-Westphalia.
