Bike Touring Highlight
The Elz, also called Elzbach on the upper reaches, is a right tributary of the Neckar, 39 km in length. It flows through the southeastern Odenwald from north to south. The mouth is 407 m lower than the source.
The Elz rises in the Odenwald northwest of Oberscheidental am Dickbuckel at an altitude of 540 m.
The origin of the Elz is a so-called seepage source. In the case of seepage springs, the groundwater emerges in numerous small water veins. The water soaks the soil, so that a more or less large spring swamp forms.
