    In the pictures here only the former basalt break can be seen. The Sodenberg is much more!

    You can also see the geotope as a cultural monument. Basalt was mined here in a former volcanic vent. When you look at the cliffs, you know that it was a tough and extremely dangerous business.

    The Sodenberg / Morlesau basalt plant was built in 1904. The area was then owned by the Count of Thüngen. The basalt quarry was below the Kilianstein ruins.
    Basalt was mined until 1958, the basalt crater, where the proud Kilianstein Castle once stood, had a depth of approx. 70 meters when the mining work was stopped.

    In fact, not a crater from the volcano, but a human-made landscape.
    Although the basalt chimney is of course of volcanic origin, it is not a hole.
