    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.

    Very nice section with two Hohlwegteilen. Unfortified loess.

    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.

    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 nice, personable local told me that the name "Galgenhohl" comes from the 30 Years War (1618-1648). At that time, enemy soldiers were tied up there and left hanging until the rope was through; - so the tradition.

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

    The impressive walls of this ravine rise up to 13 meters. It bears its name because until 1770 a gallows erected on the height could be reached through it. Macabre history, but that also belongs to our country.
