The Vorspanneiche - a historical resting place

The name Vorspanne Oak suggests that this pass in the Sauerland has always been an important traffic route. It means that in former times the horses of the merchants' wagons were unharnessed at this location. Previously, they had been borrowed in the valley as additional tractive power to overcome the mountain more easily.

Round hiking tip Border stories up close: The themed hiking trail "Border stories up close" makes it possible to experience these and other cultural and natural stories through podcasts on 4.5 km. Simply follow the circular hiking trail A2 through the Dollenbruch nature reserve from the Vorspanneiche hiking parking lot.
