The Silberteich is a man-made pond and lies on the upper reaches of the Brunnenbach stream between Braunlage and Sankt Andreasberg in the Harz Mountains of Germany. Originally it was called the Andreasberger Teich or Brunnenbacher Teich, where Teich means 'pond'. Its present name was chosen quite recently to underline its attraction as a tourist destination.
The pond was created in 1755 in order to supply the surrounding ore mines with water power. The Braunlage Blue Glass Factory (Braunlager Blaufarbenwerk), on the site of the present-day Waldmühle, also received its energy from the reservoir.
