Places of Pre-Christian, Pagan cultures at the heart of Europe connected with female figurines
The Aurignacian Culture
The Venus of Galgenberg is the second oldest Venus known.
The figurine was dubbed “Fanny”, because her posture reminds of the posture of the famous Austrian ballet dancer Fanny (Franziska) Elssler.
Galgenberg is a hill close to Stratzing, a municipality in Lower Austria (Niederösterreich).
It is situated about 65 km west of Vienna, 115 km south-west of Brno, and a mere 22 km east of Willendorf (for Willendorf, see here).
There is a signposted path with information boards on Galgenberg.
