Mountain Biking Highlight
Jungfernsprung is the name of a rock, a remnant from the Jurassic era, from which one can look far over the Kainsbach and Albachtal as well as the idyllically situated Happurger reservoir. This former coral reef is easy to climb.The name of the rock comes from a saga from the 30-year war. In 1634, the conquerors roamed the countryside. Neither money, food and livestock nor the women were safe from them. These days, the only daughter of a farmer on the Deckersberger height went the way to Kainsbach. Suddenly, two soldiers appeared, clinging to their verses. She crisscrossed through the woods to shake off her pursuers, but failed. Suddenly an abyss opened up in front of her. The desperate girl saw no other way out and dared to leap over the steep cliff face. By a happy coincidence, she stayed in the branches of a tree and was saved.
Her father had followed her, driven by an idea, and had seen the supposed death leap. He got one of the wrongdoers and killed him, the other ran for his life. The Jungfernsprung near Deckersberg, however, still commemorates the persecution of the vulnerable girl and his miraculous salvation.
