Tips

  • Peter 😎

    Former "Kalbe opencast mine" with the "Kalbesee" and fairly evenly stepped basalt walls. Nearby is the Stinksteinwand, which you can smell from afar, depending on how the wind is.

    There are many viewpoints with a wide view. Some peaks have been tried to be secured with wire ropes. The starting points can still be seen. You can smell the stink stone wall from afar.

    The calf lake and the "Stinksteinwand" as relics of brown coal mining at the Hoher Meissner. Further information is provided by the billboard at the lookout point.

    At the Kalbsee as well as at other places of the "Knappenweg" you will find interesting information boards about the former mining industry.
