    An approximately ten meter long rock breakthrough on the pioneer path. There is no way around it. In the truest sense of the word "We have to go through" :-)

  • The pioneering tunnel is a tunnel that can be passed by hikers. The tunnel is located in the course of the Pionierweg, a hiking path that was also called Magdeburger Stieg in the past, above the Selketal between Alexisbad and Mägdesprung. The pioneer cliff is not far from the tunnel. The pioneer tunnel was cut through the rock from May 14 to 19, 1900 as part of an exercise by the 2nd company of the Magdeburg Pioneer Battalion No. 4. The tunnel was partly excavated in a mining manner.

  • That's a nice change if you can walk directly through the rock.

  • Great highlight on the pioneer trail up to the Köthener Hütte, it's worth it! If you pay attention, you can discover some of the names of the pioneers in the stone.

  • At the exit of the tunnel in the direction of Alexisbad, the lovingly designed wooden struts catch their eye, as they used to be in mining tunnels.

  • A nice hiking trail, on which one comes to the Pioneer Cliff and the Pioneer Tunnel.

  • You can take the Pioniersweg from the Köthener Hütte to Alexisbad. This path is recommended because it is very beautiful and always "forcing" to stop. Protruding rocks and again and again the view of the valley, and if you're lucky you can hear and see the narrow-gauge railway "put you in" other worlds. "The peace was very relaxing.
