The miner path builds on a route that the miners used to undertake twice a day. It still preserves a wild territory which has a strong natural and landscape aspects. Along the way it will be possible to admire the trace of the old railroad once used to transport the extracted materials, entrances of various tunnels, "the russian prisoners' lair" and the remainings of the sulfuric quarry.

pittige wandeling, waarbij het laatste stuk was afgezet voor een weggespoeld pad

Schöne Runde, aber wenn man an der Brücke über das Bächlein angekommen ist, sollte man besser den Wegweisern zur "Reception" folgen. Der getrackte Weg ist oben am Berg sonst schlecht zu finden, Privatgelände und man muss an einer viel befahrenen Straße zurück ins Tal laufen. Ansonsten aber eine schöne und interessante Route
