    The quarry area covers an area of ​​about 10,000 square meters and is the best preserved quarry in the Fürth area. The up to eight-meter-high walls made of obliquely stratified, medium to coarse-grained sandstone still show clear machining traces. Partly the heavy activity of the stone crushers was facilitated by a vertical natural ventilation. The quarry in the Fürth Stadtwald covers the eastern part of the Cadolzburg ridge, a backbone made of sandstone from Burgsandstein. In this area, the coarser-grained Nuremberg facies are interlocked with the finer-grained Heldburg facies of the Burgsandstein. The dismantling of the Burgsandstein was mainly after the mighty sandstone layers of the Nuremberg facies. Fine-grained sandstones are more, the medium to coarse-grained sandstones less weathering resistant.At the northern foot of the quarries is the entrance to a large rock cellar. The system of raster-shaped corridors belonged to the former Gräflich-Pücklerschen brewery. The cellar was built from 1849 to 1852 and is listed as a monument D-5-63-000-1707. It was formerly used to store beer, and during the Second World War it was used by the population as a shelter and emergency shelter. Today, the cellars are closed and sometimes collapse or already collapsed.Source: de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steinbr%C3%BCche_im_F%C3%BCrther_Stadtwald

    Caution! Not too careless on the rocks. Risk of falling!
