|name||Trojaburg or Schwedenhieb|
|medium||turf and gravel|
|diameter of centre||16"|
|average path width||10"|
|average inter-path gap||9"|
|location||at the edge of the village, on the south side of the road to Grabsdorf, on a mound|
The first and last sections of the path are missing (the straight radial sections from the entrance and to the centre).
For analysis purposes I assume that the path starts at "A" and ends at "Z" rather than vice versa. Thus the layout conforms with that of Steigra.

Note that there are two Graitschens, fairly close to each other. You want the one near Schkölen, not the one near Bürgel.
