Cultural Heritage

The Prehistoric pile dwelling site Seegubel was in close vicinity to the prehistoric lake crossings, and neighboured by three other Prehistoric pile dwelling settlements: Freienbach–Hurden Rosshorn, Freienbach–Hurden Seefeld and Rapperswil-Jona–Technikum. Because the lake has grown in size over time, the original piles are now around 4 metres (13 ft) to 7 metres (23 ft) under the water level of 406 metres (1,332 ft). As well as being part of the 56 Swiss sites of the UNESCO World Heritage Site Prehistoric pile dwellings around the Alps, the Prehistoric settlmemnt Seegubel is also listed in the Swiss inventory of cultural property of national and regional significance as a Class object.[1][2]
