    The Judenburren was once part of the 630-kilometer-long West Wall complex. Today it is perfect for a peaceful break on your hike.

    A beautiful hiking trail. The Sodix Fountain is the first highlight on the tour.

    The Judenborn in its fortified form today, like the Göbelborn and the Klingelborn, was part of the Westwall military defense system. The Siegfried Line ran along the western border of the German Empire. On the right of the fountain you can see the horse trough with fastening ring and on the left the washing trough for the soldiers. Today the water from the Judenborn feeds the fountain trough of the nearby "Sodixhütte", which was built in the 1970s. The Judenborn owes its name to a legend according to which a poor, insidious Hüttersdorf red chalk dealer named "Sodick" hailed a supposedly wealthy Jewish trader for gold Sodick wanted to use the gold to give his beloved a "Mummenschanz" (masked dress) on Shrovetide.

    Especially in summer a beautiful place in the middle of the forest to refresh.

    Fortified fountain that was part of the Westwallanlage and previously part of the legendary Sodix stories. Offers cooling and a bench. Located on the Bach and Burren path.
