Tips

  • Nina 🌳

    The Stenzelberg (originally: Steintelberg) is a 287 meter high mountain in the Siebengebirge. It is located southwest of the Königswinter district of Heisterbacherrott near the Heisterbach monastery.
    Geologically, the Stenzelberg is a spring crest made of the volcanic rock latit, whereby the rising magma did not reach the surface of the earth, but got stuck in the surrounding tuff cover rock. The softer tuff was later removed by erosion and the harder latite exposed.
    The Stenzelberg has been used as a quarry for quartz latite since the 11th century. The stone was used for the provost church in Oberpleis, the Nikolauskapelle in Heisterbacherrott and the Bonn Minster, and later also for the churches in Nieder-, Oberdollendorf and Asbach. The other buildings erected in Stenzelberger Latit include the Heisterbacher Hof in Königswinter.
    The quarry operation ended in 1931. After the quarries were closed, a characteristic landscape developed on the Stenzelberg, which offers the special flora and fauna of a dry biotope.

    There is an easily accessible path that is secured with wooden railings around the Stenzelberg.

    Like so many things overcrowded when the weather is nice at the weekend. People then walk around the area ignoring barriers and signs or sit like monkeys on the rocks.
    Must be nice if, besides noisy people, screaming children and barking dogs, you could also hear birds and enjoy nature here.

    The Stenzelberg has not lost its attractiveness even after the stone quarrying was over.
