NaturWanderPark delux planned a hike.
December 18, 2020
This hiking route in the NaturWanderPark delux is like a journey into the past. Even in the last century, numerous mills rattled on the Our. Weirs were built in many places - dead ends for the stream inhabitants. You will be accompanied by the babbling of the river along the entire route - from the hiking car park in Dasburg to the village of the same name and back on the other side.These weirs were recently dismantled in a cross-border nature park project and fish ladders were built. Now the brown trout can move upstream again to their spawning grounds.In addition to flour, oak bark, the tan, was ground in the mills. Eichenlohe contains tanning agents for leather tanning. The oak bark was obtained in low oak forests, the tanned hedges. A welcome source of income for the formerly very poor population.Dasburg towers proudly over the valley and the town of the same name. There is even an old tannery here, a detour to this picturesque spot is worthwhile.
