    Unfortunately, this natural idyll has suffered severely under the low precipitation winters / summers of recent years. In the evening sunlight, the stone walls still provide a great picture.

    You can not cycle outside, because very fenced. The inner path of the fencing has been blocked with roots and wood! As of: end of Nov 2019

    The gradually renatured former Ludwager quarry is also nicknamed Staa-Beißer.
    Unfortunately, however, this natural idyll has suffered greatly from the low-precipitation winters and summers of recent years. In the evening sunlight, the stone walls still offer a great picture.
    The site offers good conditions for fossil researchers. You can take a small hammer with you to knock on the rugged rock and look for fossils.The lake, also known as the green lagoon, dried out around 2016 and only stones can be seen.
    The water up to four meters deep in humid days has since dried up. Not even wet winters and precipitation could fill the pool again.
    In 1994, the quarry in the Sat1 crime series The King, Follow Heart of Gold, with Günter Strack, served as the backdrop for the final scene.
    In August 2009, he served as the backdrop for guitarist Chris Mike's music video Zorro.

    In this quarry you can find some smaller fossils. If you're lucky, you might even come across a sea urchin :)
