*Erdställe*


Another thing to explore in Germany: Erdställe, or ancient underground tunnels with an unknown purpose. (I wonder if they're like the tunnels I saw in Cappadocia, Turkey, that early Christians built to hide in.)

I've never even heard of those. Where are they?

Oh, by the way, I was struggling for a German word today. Maybe you can find someone who might know. What would a German call "plains" as in the Great Plains? I was trying to write to my Germany x-host family about the pioneers crossing the plains and I couldn't think of the right word for it. Any thoughts?

Try "Präriegebiete im Westen der USA": I got it from dict.leo.org, the best German-English online dictionary ever!

Although I have been inside such underground tunnels a few times, I have never heard of the word "Erdställe" (Maybe this is Sächsisch?) We say "Stollen" or "Tunnel" or or "Katakomben". But "Erdställe"?? ;)
