Hermagor Mühlbach


History, old plans rettetdenmuehlbach.wordpress.com/docu-collection/historical


An Footpath North of the oldest settlement part of Hermagor (Stocksteinerwand), lined by the Mühlbach and accompanied a little further by the Gössering. Popular walking path and shortcut from the town centre in the direction of Schützenpark and Gösseringgraben. Closed in winter for safety reasons.

The Zitterbachl

a small stream coming from the Guggenberg and flowing through the village of Hermagor. It is named after the fact that it swells strongly during floods and is therefore feared.

The Grießbachl

A tributary to the Gössering in the upper market, which can also only be seen in pieces and is then fed to the Gössering in pipes. Private owners have created a small idyll at the Grießbachl, below the Poleinerweg. In former times there was a small bath, in which many Hermagorians refreshed themselves and learned to swim.

The Martints

Field name for a slope on the sunny side of Hermagor, which was once adorned by magnificent meadows. Now the Martinzen has been parceled out and sold by the heirs of the former owner. Much of it is now building land, and where once there were peaceful grazing cows in summer and skiing and tobogganing children in winter, apartment blocks and private houses have now sprung up. A scenically valuable recreation area is lost and gives way to the housing needs of the people. Very nice view of the old town of Hermagor from the Martinzenweg.
