Description

Erlebniswelt Mendlingtal „Auf dem HOLZweg“  

„Auf dem Holzweg“ (On the Wood path) in the Mendlingtal (valley) is the theme of the „Erlebniswelt (Adventure world) Mendlingtal“. At the heart of the Adventure world is the last working Holztriftanlage (facility where wood is transported on water) of Central Europe on which once on a distance of about 3 km wood is transported from Hof to Lassing. The Theme tour begins in Lassing. The former Schmiedegesellenhaus (blacksmiths’ apprentice's hostel) stands at the entrance to the Valley. Here at the hostel, the life of the blacksmiths’ apprentice's and their families are represented in the active forging period. The path itself leads along the transportation facility and the Mendlingbaches (river) over a distance of 2.5 km through three bottlenecks (gorges) over Trift paths and bridges past a “Klause”, which was designed as a kind of reservoir in which water and wood is collected in a collecting. Then the visitor encounters a great water source with over a century old working mill and moves on to the Hammerherrenhaus in the courtyard. On the route there are many natural and interesting geographical features. Once at the final destination, one can enter the old Hammerherrenhaus and take a rest. A monthly highlight is the Schautriftvorführungen (wood transport shows).

 

It is possible to walk back on the same route again or to request the Mendlingtal taxi.
