On the trail of history in the Mühlhausen city forest. From 1937 to 1945 there was an armaments factory here, the Gerätebau GmbH, a branch of the watch factory Gebr. Thiel from Ruhla, in which time fuses for anti-aircraft grenades were last manufactured in three shifts. The B-camp, later the Martha II branch of the Buchenwald concentration camp, was built 2km away for the labor needed.
The factories were blown up in 1947 by the Soviet Army. The ruins and rubble of the building and the surrounding wall have been hidden in the forest to this day.The B-camp served military purposes until the fall of the Berlin Wall. The Bratwurst Museum planned on the site in 2019 was relocated to the neighboring property after the concentration camp reference became known.Detailed information under

After a round around the Vieselbacher Reservoir via Mönchenholzhausen on the old dismantled B7 to the grove "Auf der Kümmel". Here, during the GDR era, Russian friends had entrenched themselves, probably a news item of the 8th Guard Army Nohra. Two smaller protective structures of low protection class, probably made in the 1960s, can still be found.
Continue across the fields in blazing sun at 29 degrees to the old brewery Vieselbach. Then back without beer via Hochstedt.

Unfortunately, due to the wind speed of 75 km / h, the cable car did not go up to the Schneekoppe, so that the route was expanded by an ascent to 1600m. Unfortunately, many had the idea of using the sunny day after the many rainy days. It was a little bit empty on our way to Mali Staw, an impressive panoma on the mountain lake on the Polish side. To get back to the Riesengrund (Obry dul) on the Czech side, a few meters of altitude had to be overcome again.
