Hirschler-Pfauenteich Cascade

Water on a high level

Discover this masterpiece of water engineering in the old mining area of Bockswiese. Six ponds arranged one above the other look as though they have been carved out of the forest. Together they can store around half a million cubic metres of water and in 1680 they already supplied numerous mines in Bockswiese with water power. On this circular tour between the six Auerhahn, Grumbacher and Flöß ponds you will learn about the function of a "Striegelhäuschen" (a small hut on the dam), the "Striegelzapfen" and the overflow.
