    Interesting basalt formations - in places very smooth and without cracks.
    As you can see from the screwed-in rings, it is a climber's paradise,

    Former quarry, which is now considered a climbing paradise. Or as a great backdrop for a walk.

    A great and entertaining round trip. We left the route every now and then because there was so much to see. Especially the view from the Bellerberg and Büden were terrific.

    The Bellerberg volcano complex erupted 200,000 years ago. Today Kottenheimer Büden and Ettringer Bellerberg surround the actual crater area in a crescent shape. In the course of the eruption, three lava flows flowed from the crater area. The stream north of the crater filled an old valley and reached a thickness of about 40 meters. It forms the quarry area of the Winfeld.
    The intensive stone mining since pre-Christian times - but especially during the past 150 years - exposed high walls of basaltic rock. This created an idyllic mine landscape. Numerous cranes, crane bases and retaining walls that stand on the imposing lava walls testify to the former activity.
