TK 9 - Terrain cure walking paths - Round trail around the pond Galgenteich.  Easy round trip along the water, very refreshing with nice views.


Follow TK9 signs. The entrance to the route starts behind the buildings of the Raupennest Rehabilitation Clinic. Keep left and after about 400 m turn right into the forest. To your right is the Great Gallows Pond Grosse Galgenteich. After 500 m you will reach a small bridge, where you turn left. The moat (Neugraben) takes you nearby the "Drinking water sources in Altenberg" information boards. As next you arrive to Schneise 31 - here you turn right. Now the road leads slightly down. In the hollow of the road, keep right again until you reach the Viehtriftweg. Here you turn right and soon you will see a drinking water reservoir for Altenberg. On the left is a nature reserve. Follow the TK9 signs. After the campsite, follow the sidewalk on the right, which leads under the natural pool. You will reach your starting point in a few minutes.
