    Nice rusty brown water flows out of a pipe from the iron source and after a few meters the soup runs into the clear water of the ditch. Somehow bizarre this source, inevitably you stop and wonder!
    Not far from the source of iron there is a refurbished refuge where sun worshipers should sit outside under the wooden board in good weather in the morning ;-)

    The hiking hut is left west, above the Dammgrabens over narrow metal bridge directly behind the curve to reach.

    Already incredible that water should be so ferrous here.

    Very suitable for the night camp. The soil (small gravel) is flat, dry and warm.

    The iron source is located directly on the Dammgraben which is also part of the Harz Hexenstieg
