A canal system called Wuhr, with which the peasants had already freed their meadows from the snow in the 13th century and enabled Webern to use hydropower early. Early iron hammers, oil mills and sawmills were thus driven. To this day, the kilometer-long system is intact. At the end of the 19th century, the plans for the hydropower plant, built in 1908, began a few meters upstream from the Energy Museum in the forest. Here, the Murg is also water taken, which is derived in the modern cavern power plants of Schluchseewerke.
