Alongside Hallstatt, the site at Simonbauernfeld on the Dürrnberg is one of the most important locations for Celtic objects in Central Europe. It may have been a place of settlement for the Alpine-Celtic Ambisonten.

The site has a small cemetery of thirteen graves that stand out for their complex nature with ritual activity in the spaces between graves.

A fragment of Greek ceramics from around 500 BCE found here testifies to extensive trade relations, the salt mined here served as an important export good.

There is some publicly available research on this site, see: R. Lavelle, Th. Stöllner – Collective memories and burial practice.
