    The quarry, which existed until 1900, was the reason to make the castle and crest of the mountain disappear and to reduce the summit height by about 30 meters.The buildings built entirely or partially in Wolkenburger Latit include the Cologne Cathedral, the castles Augustusburg and Falkenlust and the Bensberg Castle. In Bonn, the stone from the Wolkenburg was used in the construction of the Poppelsdorf Palace and the Old Town Hall.
