    A very nice spectacle is the water fountain at the hydroelectric power station, always on public holidays and on Sundays from spring to autumn. Really worth seeing.

    The historic hydroelectric power station in Höllental got a wood grinding shop going as early as 1888. It has been supplying electricity since 1933. In order to use the hydropower of the Selbitz in the Franconian Höllental you need a steep gradient, the valley of the river does not manage this and so the water is dammed at a weir and fed to the power plant via pipes. There it is temporarily stored in a water tower and then fed to the turbine from a height of just over 30 meters.

    From the water tower you can hike over the Röhrensteig towards Hell. An old path that runs on the pipes that were laid from the weir to the power plant.
