    An estate of the Counts of Ingelheim from another era. 😀

    Visually, it fits well into the landscape and gives the right angle also a nice photo opportunity.

    A few lines about the story:The Counts Ingelheim, who were heirs to Mespelbrunn Castle after the male line of the Echter died out, built an estate on the grounds of an old mill. The first iron hammer - the Höllhammer - was built on this as early as 1700. The water-rich Spessart and the extensive forests favored the operation of iron hammers, as water power was needed to drive the hammers and wood or charcoal for the smelting furnaces.When Georg Ludwig Rexroth from the Odenwald took over Höllhammer in 1795, no one suspected that it would one day lay the foundation for today's global company. The Höllhammer (named after a gorge once west of the Elsava, the Höllgraben) quickly developed into the most powerful iron hammer in the Spessart.
