Schlupkothen quarry


industrial culture
The Schlupkothen quarry is a 31-hectare nature reserve around which a 45-60 minute circular route leads. After the limestone quarry was shut down around 50 years ago, nature reclaimed the fallow land. With its turquoise water surfaces and high, overgrown rock faces, the former quarry offers a habitat for endangered animal species and an impressive backdrop.
