See under hell.
Name or name component of numerous individual locations in the German-speaking area. Examples of the latter are Gutenhölle, Hahnhölle, Höllenberg, Höllenbrand, Höllenpfad, Höllenweg, Katzenhölle, Langhölle, Mainhölle, Muckerhölle, Ritterhölle, Schlosshölle, Schönhölle, Vor der Hölle and Würzhölle. The name has less to do with the place of horror, but is mostly derived from the Old High German "Helda" for slagheap or steep slope comparable to the English "Hill". However, it can also indicate hot climatic conditions.
The south-east facing vineyard with a slope gradient of 5 to 25% comprises 66 hectares of vineyards on highly variable soils with predominantly hanging debris mixed with lime, clay marl, loamy sand and sandy loam. The Riesling variety is mainly cultivated here. The Argus Peter, Minges Theo, Sauer Heiner and St. Annaberg wineries have a share in the site.
