    A great view of the Westbruch from the highest ridge, which is about 27 meters high. The rock is granite porphyry, which is still quarried today. You can also climb and dive here.

    At Waldsteinberg, granite porphyry was and still is broken today. The reddish stone is still in demand. From the local area the stones of the 91 m high Völkerschlacht - monument to Leipzig, which is still regarded as Europe's largest monument of modern times. Where the stone is "missing" in nature, crystal clear water has long since collected. In the meantime, the eastern break is used for climbing 🧗♀️ and the western break for diving 🏊🏼♂️. In addition, from the west break from a mega, beautiful view in the direction of Leipzig. One sees z.b. The Völkerschlachtdenkmal and the University Giant in Leipzig's skyline.

    Bathing forbidden, whether the youngsters stick to it, hope / don't believe.
    What a bizarre quarry with a beautiful single trail around the lake.
    The highlight for me were the pines on the edge and the bench in the middle of the rock face.
    Anyone who wants to relax there has to be almost an alpinist. 😂👌
