  • The trail, which lies between Gimbelhof and Fleckenstein, brings the hiker closer to the history of the charcoal burners and explains how it worked with the aid of a coal mine. Especially if you go to the annual Köhlerfest the path is interesting.

  • The Sentier des Charbonniers, that is the Köhlerlehrpfad gives insight into the method of charcoal production. It connects the castle Fleckenstein and the Gimbelhof and describes the different stages of the kiln production to the charring of wood.
    This method was used in the region until the 20th century.

  • The production of charcoal is clearly explained here. The way to the Fleckenstein ruins becomes an open-air museum. The path is easy to walk, a nice, soft forest path, nice in the shade and therefore pleasant even in hot temperatures.

  • Charcoal burning is an ancient craft that is now – almost – extinct, but in the past it was a decisive factor in the industrialization of entire regions: the blast furnaces of the iron and steel industry, for example, depended on charcoal to reach the operating temperature required for ore smelting. As a result, however, whole areas were once completely deforested by charcoal burning and it is only thanks to later reforestation that forests have emerged again and nature can be seen.
