    The Dietesheim quarries

    A popular destination in Dietesheim form the former basalt quarries, today an attractive recreational area.
    After the end of the basalt mining in 1982, an impressive lake landscape of more than 61 hectares was created here, of which approximately 22.5 hectares of deep blue water surface. In addition to the largest lakes, the Vogelsberg Lake and the Oberwaldsee, the charming landscape is complemented by a series of smaller lakes. High cliffs can be admired as bizarre rock formations that are unique in the Rhine-Main region.

    Very nice circuit around the lakes in Mühlheim. Refreshment possible in the Green Lake restaurant.

    The Dietesheim quarries

    A popular destination in Dietesheim form the former basalt quarries, today an attractive recreational area.

    After the end of the basalt mining in 1982, an impressive lake landscape of more than 61 hectares was created here, of which approximately 22.5 hectares of deep blue water surface. In addition to the largest lakes, the Vogelsberg Lake and the Oberwaldsee, the charming landscape is complemented by a series of smaller lakes. High cliffs can be admired as bizarre rock formations that are unique in the Rhine-Main region.

    For recultivation around 120,000 trees, mostly oaks and alders, as well as approximately 7,000 shrubs have been planted on Lake Vogelsberg and on the Oberwaldsee. Rare plants and animals have found a new habitat here. A section of the lake landscape around the Oberwaldsee is today under nature protection.

    Good walkways lead visitors to beautiful viewpoints, whose highlight is the so-called Canyon Bridge. Around the recreation area extensive equestrian trails are created.

    Mühlheimer associations invite in the warm season to colorful celebrations and festivals in the club houses on the edge of the quarries.

    Depending on the weather, the water shimmers from green to blue.
