    “Lubricating and ointing helps everywhere,” so the saying goes. In the past, charcoal and useful by-products that were used, for example, for leather manufacture or pharmaceutical products were extracted from inferior knot wood.

    I love the monuments of yesteryear, just like this former oven.

    Here is the second ointment oven on Tonbachsteig, which is even better preserved. Information boards explain the historical use.
