This circular walk takes us via Aichmühle and Bechthal to Oberkesselberg. On the way, we pass a historic ore washing plant, a bathing pond and the Bechthal ruins.
Our tour has a few highlights in store for us: Today, the moated castle houses a brewery that mainly produces wheat beer. It has an irregular octagonal ground plan with two towers and was probably the seat of the nobles of Titting, whose presence is attested until 1237. Until 1862, running water was used to separate the mined ore from the rubble at the Erzwäsche before it was smelted. Today, the springs of the Erzwäschebach stream still bear witness to the location of this early industrial processing method. Bechthal Fortress was built in the 12th century. Its decay probably began in the 16th century. The freely accessible castle offers a magnificent view.
