    Witches were drowned here at the time

    The name is reminiscent of its dark past: here, in times of witch-hunts, innocent women and men allegedly brought to witchcraft have been drowned. Today, the witch pond is a popular destination and impresses with its beautiful location and atmosphere. In a small bay that flows into a rock valley lives even a turtle population.
    Around the witch's pond are tree sculptures, which look at first distant look like Indian pylons. In fact, they are miraculous sculptures by the Serbian artist Mile Prerad.
    Directly on the shore is a very large and fully covered barbecue hut (for up to 60 people), which can be rented on Tel: 02373 - 903202.

    @ Marc: Maybe a little bit on the wording regarding "witches" pay attention.
