Super nice place. Is still being renovated, but the gastronomy is open and the staff is super friendly. Here you can linger and let your soul dangle on a hike or bike tour to strengthen yourself. Recommended. ??

A journey into the past. Great that something new is emerging here. At the moment "only" the beer garden (Sat & Sun from 12 p.m.) is open due to the construction work on the castle. Definitely worth a visit. Here you can relax (very relaxed, quiet music in the background) and enjoy cold drinks, as well as coffee, cake and a small snack. We are looking forward to the opening of further areas and will definitely be back ??.

Es wird zwar noch gebaut, aber der Biergarten von Schloss Petershagen ist nun wieder geöffnet. Es gibt dort an den Wochenenden zu fairen Preisen Getränke, Kuchen und Kleinigkeiten zum Essen, die man beim Springbrunnen im Schlosshof zu sich nehmen kann. Dabei kann man an den alten Schlossmauern zahlreiche Details entdecken. Sehr nettes Personal sorgt für einen angenehmen Aufenthalt. Es hat uns sehr gut gefallen.

The beer garden has been open in the inner courtyard since May 1st, 2022. At the WEEKEND you can also order a cool drink and/or eat something small. Otherwise you can sit down and let the ancient walls work on you ^^ ? How beautiful ?? The interior of the castle will only be opened later, as a number of maintenance works have to be carried out. I'm already looking forward to a delicious beer ☺

Monte d'Accoddi

Monte d"Accoddi is a Neolithic archaeological site in northern Sardinia, located in the territory of Sassari. The site consists of a massive raised stone platform thought to have been an altar. It was constructed by the Ozieri culture or earlier, with the oldest parts dated to around 4,000–3,650 BC.

The site was discovered in 1954 in a field owned by the Segni family. No chambers or entrances to the mound have been found, leading to the presumption it was an altar, a temple or a step pyramid. It may have also served an observational function, as its square plan is coordinated with the cardinal points of the compass.

The initial Ozieri structure was abandoned or destroyed around 3000 BC, with traces of fire found in the archeological evidence. Around 2800 BC the remains of the original structure were completely covered with a layered mixture of earth and stone, and large blocks of limestone were then applied to establish a second platform, truncated by a step pyramid (36 m × 29 m, about 10 m in height), accessible by means of a second ramp, 42 m long, built over the older one. This second temple resembles contemporary Mesopotamian ziggurats, and is attributed to the Abealzu-Filigosa culture.

Archeological excavations from the chalcolithic Abealzu-Filigosa layers indicate the Monte d"Accoddi was used for animal sacrifice, with the remains of sheep, cattle, and swine recovered in near equal proportions. It is among the earliest known sacrificial sites in Western Europe.

The site appears to have been abandoned again around 1800 BC, at the onset of the Nuragic age.

The monument was partially reconstructed during the 1980s. It is open to the public and accessible by the old route of SS131 highway, near the hamlet of Ottava. It is 14,9 km from Sassari and 45 km from Alghero. There is no public transportation to the site. The opening times vary throughout the year.
