Mountain Biking Highlight (Segment)
The Lochbach, formerly also called Fountain Plate, is a 9 km long left channel of the Lech before and in Augsburg. The name Brunnenlech probably goes back to the fact that the water power of the canal served in the waterworks at the Red Gate to supply the wells of Augsburg. Their drinking water was not drawn there from the Lochbach, but from the Brunnenbach. The Lochbach was already in the Middle Ages a canalized branch of the Lech, which supplied the branched sewer system of Augsburg with use of water. He drove as Vorderer Lech in the 11th century four town mills, including the Pfladermühle.In Haunstetten he was since the 19th century for the energy supply of the emerging industry (including Martini) used.
