    One of the greatest technical cultural monuments of the early Middle Ages: the Fossa Carolina (the Karlsgraben). Around the year 793, Charlemagne had a canal about 3000 m long excavated in order to be able to comfortably sail to the southeast of his empire. A water surface that is still 500 m long today and the subsequent earth walls testify to the first attempt to connect the Rhine, Main and Danube through a waterway. The place invites you to linger, beautiful display boards, seating groups and public toilets, almost everything available.

    It is always astonishing how land surveys and surveys were carried out with relatively modest resources in previous years, on the basis of which planning was carried out and buildings and water treatment plants were realized. There are certainly only a few who could implement such services without the use of GPS data.
