Bridegroom's Oak

The tree is close to a forest road that branches off Bundesstraße 76 shortly after leaving Eutin in the direction of Plön, which is marked with a sign. The address is: Bräutigamseiche, Dodauer Forst, Eutin 23701, Germany. There is a legend that the tree was planted as a gesture of thanks by a Celtic chieftain's son after being tied to a tree in the forest and released by a Christian girl. However, historians believe that this legend has been invented by Christian missionaries to reinterpret pagan worship of oak trees. A service is still being held on Whit Monday at the tree. Another custom is for a girl to walk around the tree three times under a full moon, thinking of her beloved without speaking or laughing; she will be married within a year.
