Tips

  • Jonas Wind

    Glass production gave its name to the nearby "Glaskopf" summit and the "Glashütte" settlement. Today, little more than the foundations of the former stoves can be seen.

    There are a few remnants of glassblowing huts from the Middle Ages (13th century).

    It would be desirable if other communities also set their (industry) monuments in such a scene.

    Here, near the millennia-old trade routes, there is a small medieval industrial area over the centuries: first charcoal fires, then an iron ore melt and finally the glassblowing with five buildings.

    Nice rest area, right by the stream and an interesting insight into the historic glass production.

    Interesting place with a beautiful waterfall when there is enough water. In winter, the historic glass furnaces are covered, so you should walk in the spring to fall, if you want to see them. Otherwise, just nice.

    There are apparently many marked spots here, but always the same. Recommended, but not in winter, because the buildings are covered.
