    Alone the path "down there in the valley" along the creek, worth it. It is very shady, but in warm weather an excellent alternative to the (almost) parallel foot (highway) away. Recommended!

    The stream is called Hainbach, a part of the stream flows over the historic forest shower. In summer, the shower is used by some hikers.

    In the summer a great refreshment. In the winter rather for the hard-boiled.

    The forest shower in Gleisweiler is built of sand-lime bricks and it is proven to be the only existing plant of this kind in Germany. The water temperature ranges between eight and twelve degrees Celsius.

    Today it was too fresh for me to try the shower - on hot summer days definitely cool! In the past, spa guests were taken to showers by coach.

    The forest shower is in operation all year round. If frost persists, it closes.The forest shower in Gleisweiler is built from federal sandstones and is demonstrably the only system of this kind that still exists in Germany.
    The water temperature ranges between eight and twelve degrees Celsius. On hot days there is often a lively business with courageous “cold showers”.
    The care and maintenance of the system requires the constant and active commitment of the members of the Forest Shower Promotion Association
