Tips

  • Carola K.

    Mystical resting place on a gate-shaped rock formation, the French Bridge. While taking a break here, you can be amazed at what physics and skillful architecture can do.

    The "Franzosenbruck" is a station on the Princess-Friederike-Weg. At 450 meters you can experience walkable history, a pond with an accessible island where the gentlemen invited you for coffee, the Franzosenbruck as an originally designed rock gate, a small mountain lake at the foot of the ascent to the victory tower, past imposing rock formations. The path steeped in history got its name in memory of Princess Friederike Sophie, the only daughter of Wilhelmine von Bayreuth and Margrave Friedrich.

    Here the Duchess of Württemberg, Dorothea Friederike Sophie von Brandenburg, had a hermit detention facility with wooden turrets and bell built, called the “Chapel in the Wood”. Emigrants from the French Revolution helped with the construction, hence the name "Franzosenbruck". A rock arch made of sandstone blocks is still preserved.

    Doesn't really stand out that much at first :) But it's nicely done and fits in well.
