The bear trap on the Waldstein is mentioned in records as early as 1656. The last bear was supposedly caught in this trap in 1760. It is supposedly the last standing bear trap in Germany. Zeitungsbericht Bärenfang am Waldstein ------ newspaper report on Waldstein bear trap, translated, scroll down

Fascinating building and story....it was sad to read about the end of the bear population in Germany though.

Herrlich, das Grün in Licht und Schatten, idyllische Aufnahme, Panamon! - Nicht so für den Bären! ;)
