Mountain Biking Highlight
The legend revolves around the Hundsmarter - the local mountain of Markersbach. Today, the upper reservoir (the upper reservoir) of the pumped storage Kaftwerk is located on the hilltop. According to the legend, the following story should have happened:500 years ago, the Hundsmarterweibl for a vain reason his witch leg trampled on the Hundsmarter so that the mountain has risen and devoured it in a huge Feuerlohe. Every day since that day, every 100 years, he would come out of the mountain at the hour of his hellish journey, to see how the world lives.On the occasion of the 103rd German Hiking Day, which was held in 2003 in Schwarzenberg and the surrounding area, including Markersbach, the living figure of the Hundsmarterweibl was created. To bring back peace on the mountain, joined in 2004 to her a male companion, the "Hundsmartergust" called. In order to express her joy over Gust, an image of him was created along the wayside. Now both are peacefully moving through the woods of the mountain. If you do not want to rely on the luck to meet our legendary figures, the Hundsmarterweibl and her Gust can be ordered for a meeting. Information about this in the Tourist Office Markersbach.(Source: findcity.de/?m=gemeinde-raschau-markersbach-buergerinfo-08352b&p=00000013)
