    Cool project in terms of sustainability: Here, energy is used to generate energy for Egloffstein in a classic way with the power of water. So that the fish and amphibians do not suffer, there is a hiking aid that allows the animals to overcome the 3.25 meters difference in altitude.

  • Worth seeing water wheel and a "photo point" in Egloffstein, a bench is at the inlet. You should definitely take a look, as it also serves as a hydroelectric power station. Established in 1996, it has since supplied around 50 households with electricity.
