Tips

  • Jochen

    The name probably comes from the fact that the path was once used to bring the convicted to the Galgenberg and thus to their execution.

    Up to 13 meters rise the steep loess walls of the gallows hollow in the air. At the end of this section, you have a great view of the Katzbach and the Kraichbachtal.

    Very nice section with two Hohlwegteilen. Unfortified loess.

    The Kraichgau is one of the regions with the most sunken paths. One of the most beautiful and best preserved hollows is the 600m long and 12m deep gallows.

    A very nice, sympathetic gentleman told me, where the name "Galgenhohl" came from: It has to do with the Thirty Years War. At that time you should have untied the enemy soldiers there, and let hang until the rope through true. But he immediately added that not everything was right that would be told.

    Hollow paths in the Kraichgau that are not paved are interesting for hiking and are often designated as a small nature reserve.
