Former, listed forest farm in a side valley of the Zieglertal (the Palatinate Forest Tour cycle path runs through this) between Merzalben and Hinterweidenthal with small, idyllic forest lakes and the source of the Wieslauter in the vicinity.
The Wieslauter-Ursprung spring is freely accessible all year round. The listed, former forest farm estate, however, is owned by the State of Rhineland-Palatinate. Entering the property is prohibited by signs.
Attention: The spring and the estate are located in the core zone "Spring area of the Wieslauter" of the Palatinate Forest biosphere reserve. The protective provisions of § 7 of the state ordinance of the Palatinate Forest Biosphere Reserve must therefore be observed. Entering this core zone is only permitted on marked paths and at your own risk. Incidentally, the paths must not be left. Fallen trees and falling branches always remain in the core zones. Standing dead or dying trees are not felled. Therefore, falling branches or trees must be expected at any time and without prior notice. Paths and paths are no longer cleared or maintained, even if they may still be included in hiking maps. In emergencies, rescue operations are only possible to a limited extent and under difficult conditions.
