From Bavaria, Germany, Christoph has been detecting since 1999. He received his first metal detector from his grandfather, to explore the German Westwall/Siegfried line for left behind WWII military relics, for his 18th birthday. His first finds were an old German WWII steel helmet, as well as various military decorations.
A keen interest in Roman, Celtic, and Medieval history has driven Christoph to search for historical treasures all accross Europe. The woods, farm fields, old rocks, and narrow passes are his playground when it comes to metal detecting, however relic and coin hunting is his specialty. Christoph loves being in nature with fellow detectorists and takes every opportunity to inspire others to take up detecting.
Christoph has found huge range of treasures spanning many historical eras, with one of his most memorable finds being a silver Medieval coin hoard. Above all else, Christoph is driven by the excitement of making finds, and the preservation of all treasures for posterity.
