"Hidden Idyll in the Forest - Landshuber Weiher in Kannenbäcker Land
Ransbach-Baumbach / Höhr-Grenzhausen. Hidden in the forest between Ransbach-Baumbach and Höhr-Grenzhausen are four idyllic fishponds. No official trail leads directly to them - from nature and landscape conservation.
About the trails HG1 and HG6 but you get to the vicinity of the so-called Landshuber pond. You should carefully approach the waters, because many wild birds are native there, so dogs belong on a leash. Especially the second pond (coming from the north) is a splendor, if here the water lilies bloom lush.
But even in autumn and winter, this place has its own special charm. Gnarled ancient trees line the waters. The ponds are fed by the Hinterste Bach. In 1666 they were created on behalf of the Elector to Trier. The ponds should once cover the fishing needs of Catholics on Friday. Whether the population has got something, is doubtful. It is more likely that the fish bred here ended up only in the stomachs of the nobility.
Today, the ponds belong to the state of Rhineland-Palatinate, are managed by the forestry office Neuhäusel and are leased. Only the permanent maintenance of the ponds and the use for fish farming have received this beautiful facility. "
