The 15 km long Brunnenwanderweg, with its many different wells - which used to be mainly used as cattle watering and washing wells - leads around Esthal near Lambrecht.

The Brunnenweg, divided into two sections, is marked with the blue well on a white background. The start is at the village square in Esthal.

1. We walk past the community centre in the direction of Entengasse. Immediately after the sandstone house, a meadow path leads into the valley to the Straufelsbrunnen fountain. After refreshment, we walk back a bit, circling the Aschberg. Pass the sports field, cross the road and follow the path above the Hengstental to the Wögelbrunnen. Leave the fountain in the direction of the road and walk down the stairs at the sports centre to the path. On the way back, across the meadows on the right is the Tränkenbrunnen.

2. The second loop takes you down Bergstraße and just after the last houses turn right across the meadow path to the Nebelsbrunnen. From here, the trail continues through the Nebelstal valley until it branches off to the right at the beginning of the forest towards the Römerbrunnen. Once at the Römerbrunnen, we descend into the valley of the Breitenbach to the Goldbrunnen. This is a spring where the water presses through the sand from below. As a result, the surface is quite calm, although the spring supplies a lot of water. From here, take the path uphill on the opposite side of the valley to the Erntsiegelbrunnen (harvest seal well). On the way there, it is worth taking a short detour to the viewpoint on Esthal. After the Erntsiegelbrunnen (harvest seal well), the trail leads back to the village via the Wolfsschluchthütte (wolf gorge hut), which invites you to take a break at weekends and on Wednesdays, and the Schelmenteichbrunnen (pond well).

Actual Informations

In general:

Especially in autumn, also be aware that leaves lying on the ground can hide bumps, roots, stones or holes in the path. After thunderstorms or rainstorms, trees can still fall over or branches can fall down afterwards. Especially in adverse weather conditions, muddy and slippery passages can occur on natural paths. Not all rocks or precipices are secured with ropes or railings. Surefootedness is required in places. You have to expect this type of path impairment when you undertake a hike. If you are of the opinion that certain sections of the trail are not passable for you, you should avoid them.


We endeavour to announce on this platform any closures that occur due to forestry work or hunting parties. Nevertheless, there are situations where trails are closed and we may not have been informed. If you unexpectedly encounter a trail closure or diversion, please follow the instructions for your own safety.
