Through the valley of the clattering mills to the adventure world of Blockhausen. The huge wooden water wheels drive the mills in the Gimmlitztal with loud squeaking and rustling. They spit out a curtain of clear water. The hammers and mortars of the grinding and tamping works develop enormous forces that a human being could not muster alone. The screeching chainsaws, which carve amazingly filigree works of art out of the gigantic blocks of wood at the annual chainsaw world championships, also develop enormous power. In Blockhausen you dive into a gigantic fantasy settlement made of wood. You won't find a comparably large collection of wooden sculptures anywhere else. The highlight is the 40 meter long table. Carved from a single tree trunk, it is in the Guinness Book of Records.
Bathing opportunities along the tour: adventure pool Mulda and eco pool Rechenberg-Bee Mill
The circular route begins at the portal in Holzhau, first it goes over the transfer route (BLOCKLINE connection) in the direction of Hermsdorf. The BLOCKLINE route then leads through the Gimmlitztal in the direction of Frauenstein. The old castle ruins tower over the city and radiate the charm of the Scottish Highlands here in the Ore Mountains. You then pass the town of Mulda, which was known early on as a watchmaker and violin maker village. On hot days, it's worth making a stop at the Mulda adventure pool to refresh tired legs. Now it goes up the Geleitstraße up to a hill, the next reward awaits in the forest adventure village BLOCKHAUSEN. The center of chainsaw art is a special highlight on this round. We continue to Dorfchemnitz, where the water has been working hard for centuries. Two powerful water wheels allow the blacksmith's hammer to tirelessly tap in the "Eisenhammer", one of the oldest craft workshops in Saxony. Along the mountain town of Sayda, which used to be of great importance as a rest and trading place as an important customs station, we head towards Kreuztanne. From here, the Loop2 transfer route leads via Cämmerswalde back to Rechenberg-Bienenmühle/ Holzhau
