    The carrying castle is located above the dam. Here also leads the Harzer-Hexen-Stieg along. There is no sign of the castle, only the profile of the area can be guessed. The view of the dam is awesome. A refuge offers possibility for rest and houses the stamp 52 of the Harzer hiking nobility.

    Just because of the view, it is worth a visit because of the castle is nothing to guess.
    If not a display board would not desert you this was a castle.
    A stamp office of the HWN is also here.

    On the round trip you should definitely stop by the Rabenstein.

    On the mountain spur of the castle ruins you have a brilliant view of the dam. You will not find much of the former castle anymore. You can read their former purpose on an information board. The refuge offers you a rest opportunity, the stamp box of the Harzer hiking nobility the chance to fill your notebook further. A good way to visit the castle, offers from Trautenstein along the Rappbode.

    The Bodensekmal Trageburg (499 m above sea level) was a small medieval castle and is located 2.5 km from Trautenstein away above the right bank of the Rappbode Vorsperre.

    The carrying castle was a medieval castle. There are still remnants of a building to suspect.

    A very nice and easy to walk circular walk about 8.5km to the dam.
    On the forest roads, there are now and then quite steep short sections. Also, one should be on the way with dortogenic roots partially sure-footed.
