Description

The main focus is the Herznach mine, where ore was extracted from 1937 to 1967. The "Ueker Weichlen" prospecting site and the Summerhalde "bean ore " (iron ore) deposits in Zeihen also bear witness to the region's history. The complete route (14 km) takes about three hours.

The careful planning of a tour will ensure that you also derive the maximum pleasure and enjoyment from it. Please take the time to contact the local information centre and enquire about route and weather conditions before setting off. Your intended trail may be fully or partially closed, depending on the time of year and weather conditions.
