    The large and small gallows ponds were created as mining facilities: water was needed to operate the "water arts", which lifted the water out of the pits. And these ponds were the reservoirs for this water. The Great Gallows Pond was (1550!) The largest of its kind (even if it was smaller then ;-)).

    Natural swimming pool Galgenteich Altenberg
    The idyllic natural swimming pool Kleiner Galgenteich is not only a highlight because of its wonderful location at the foot of the Kahleberg. Natural pool with a giant water slide, children's slide, diving tower, playground, beach volleyball court, nudist area and snack bar. A large swimmer and non-swimmer area are available to guests here. The younger guests can u. a. explore the large sandpit and the other play equipment. Sunbathing lawns under shady trees invite you to relax and unwind.
    In our bath restaurant we provide you with drinks, ice cream and quick meals right on the lake.
