Jungfernsprung is the name of the rock and lookout point, a remnant from the Jura period, from which one can see far over the Kainsbach and Albach valleys and the idyllically situated lower reservoir. The name of the rock comes from a legend from the 30 Years War.
In the 30 Years War the conquerors also roamed the surrounding area. Neither money, food, and cattle, nor the women folk were safe from them. In those days the only daughter of a farmer on the Deckersberger Höhe went to Kainsbach. Suddenly two soldiers appeared, clinging to their verses. She ran back and forth through the woods to shake off her pursuers, but she couldn't. Suddenly an abyss opened up in front of her. The desperate girl saw no other way out and dared to jump over the steep rock face. But by a lucky coincidence she got stuck in the branches of a tree and was saved. But her father had followed her and had seen the supposed jump of death. He caught one of the wrongdoers and killed him, the other ran for his life. The maiden jump near Deckersberg, however, is still a reminder of the persecution of the defenseless girl and his wonderful rescue.

This lookout point is called the Jungfernsprung. Nice viewpoint with a view of the reservoir and Kainsbach. There is also a bench on site to take a breath. Stand04 / 2020 was also cut out nicely and you now have an unrestricted view in the surrounding area.

Rock spur with dream views over the Happurger reservoir and over Kainsbach to the south. A stable bench - despite shaky attachment - is ideal for a long rest. Since some of the view is obstructed by leaves in summer, visits during the leaf-free periods up to the beginning of May are recommended.
