Gallus-Säge in the Zuwälder Tal
A saw driven by water power
The "Gallus-Säge" (a saw driven by water power) is located at the entrance to the Zuwälder Tal. The building was erected in 1834 and served as a "Hofsäge" for sawing up tree trunks on a water-power driven basis. The wooden gate and drive mechanism date from 1930, the water wheel was renewed in 1993. The saw still functions perfectly but nowadays is just used for show purposes. Guided tours can be arranged by prior appointment in special cases. In this respect please also refer to our events calendar.
