Schiessentümpel

With the idyllic stone and wood bridge, the surrounding rocks and the lush vegetation, the "Schiessentümpel" is one of the most popular excursion destinations in the region.

The bridge was built around 1879 by the Christnach bricklayer and sculptor J.P. Pomeranian pancakes. The reason given for its construction was that the residents of Christnach were able to get to their wooded parcels on the other side of the river during floods in winter. A previous bridge fell victim to the flood.

The natural stone bridge is self-supporting and mostly dry, i.e. built without mortar. Artistic reliefs depicting animals and mythical creatures are carved in numerous sandstones.

For the 140th anniversary, celebrations in honor of the famous Mullerthal landmark took place on July 21, 2019.

The starting point is Camping "La Pinède". This tour is on Route 2 from the Mullerthal Trail.
