This heavily overgrown mining dump on the western slope of the Kobelsberg was created during the construction of the Baiertaler tunnel between 1926 and 1930. Unfortunately it consists almost exclusively of unusable rock, but it used to be the site of fossils of limonite (oxidic iron ore) that were completely converted into limonite.
