The "Svantevite Stone" is an image stone made of granite, on which a man with chin and mustache is recognizable in relief.

The "Svantevit stone" is a granite image stone on which a man with a chin and mustache can be seen in relief, wearing a caftan-like skirt or fitted coat, cap and shoes, and holding a drinking horn in his hands. Similarities to the god Svantevit from the sanctuary in the castle at Cape Arkona are recognizable. The stone, which is also addressed as a grave slab, was walled in horizontally only after the construction of the parish church in Altenkirchen. It could be the remains of a Slavic burial.
