    The section of the path here is known as the "Püttschneise". The word
    "Pütt" comes from Low German and means well. It used to be
    further south actually given a source by the residents of the
    Area was bordered and served as a well mainly for their cattle. So
    Among other things, people drove their pigs, cattle,
    Sheep and horses go there to drink. They ate each other in the surrounding forest
    Animals fed up with acorns, beechnuts, wild herbs and tree shoots and prevented
    thus the forest regeneration. After all, the farmers used it too
    the foliage as litter for their stalls, so that nutrients are constantly drawn from the
    System. Every few years there was also "disgusted",
    that is, the herb layer including the roots was removed with a hoe
    and also transported as litter to the cattle sheds. The source that the
    Well has long since been extracted from sand, gravel and clay
    dried up.
