    Beautiful old quarry which is especially beautiful by the basalt formation and the arched breakthrough

    From the Rothaarsteig on the Aubach you have a view through a deep rock cut to a tunnel through which the basalt was transported. The tunnel is under water all year round. A small path leads to the east of the mountain to a small plateau, from which one can look into the quarry.

    This basalt quarry is a jewel - first of all the breakthrough on trail height. Mostly filled with water - here you will find many animals, such as amphibians and frogs. But you can also look in from above. Interesting are the stone formations and the smooth walls - already impressive what nature can create. But please do not go down. This biotope should be protected.
