Tips

  • Anette

    You are standing here in a volcanic cone that collapsed ages ago. Until 1913, the columnar basalt was mined at this point. And the Hexenhäusl was - hard to believe - the house of the demolition expert. It was prepared as a refuge in 1930/1952.

    Very nice council place with seating at the witch's house with a song and information board at the basalt quarry

    There are diverse geological formations in the Tharandt Forest, one of which is the basalt quarry. The quarry was in operation until 1913 and has been a natural (area) monument since 1939. The interesting formation was created by the cooling of magma over the course of millions of years

    The house has a fitting name immediately behind the basalt rock. Since there would or are several benches in front of it? Here demonstrations for children are certainly particularly exciting.
