    Now it goes on through the Eng. This is a beautiful, wildly romantic gorge where we can still see the remains of an old wooden giant. This was used in the past to bring the wood to the valley.

    The wooden giant in the Eng bei Payerbach, which is more than seven kilometers long, was once one of the largest timber delivery systems in the Schneeberg area. The coveted raw material was brought down to it until the 1950s, when the "rule" of forest roads and trucks began. The City of Vienna Forest Service reconstructed part of the wooden transport trough that was assembled without a single nail. And now the forestry office has restored the monument - because it is undoubtedly one - for which it deserves praise.
    Today it is difficult to imagine how laborious the labor of the wood servants was. There was a lot of hustle and bustle in the narrow, at the confluence of the Promiska trench - which the Federal Office renamed Mitterberggraben for some unknown reason - there was even a small tavern. In the meantime it has become quiet in the gorge-like Eng, except for the renovated piece, only remains of the old giant can be seen, but which evoke some memories.
