Coal pile route 4

Through the Ittingen forest to the place of the coal pile - 30 minutes there and back.

For many years - the last time in 2018 - a coal pile was built in the forest of Ittingen Charterhouse according to old tradition and ceremonially put into operation.
In the Ittingen forest, near the charcoal-burner's square, information boards tell about the charcoal-burner's trade.

Ittingen charcoal is currently still available in the monastery shop.
Due to a lack of charcoal burners it is uncertain whether this old craft can be maintained in the coming years in the Ittingen forest.
