Tips

  • Marco

    An impressive former quarry that can almost be circled on a path.
    Furthermore, (blocked) paths lead into the quarry.

    Here someone has taken the trouble to fly over the quarry with a drone: gives you a very good impression.

    The entire route is accessible to children.
    However, you have to take good care of them - and yourself - because you sometimes go close to the demolition edge and this - if at all - is only partially provided with ailing and rudimentary safeguards.

    You can go directly to the (unsecured) demolition edge.
    Although it is nowhere near as deep as in the neighboring quarry, (komoot.de/highlight/396054) you should still be careful.

    All a great hike around the quarry. You get an idea of how dangerous it can be. Please don't go too close to the edge. At these points you should take good care of your children.

    Unfortunately very foggy when I was there. Therefore I recommend to come here in better weather.

    Even if you don't plan to climb the quarry yourself, you can see it from close up from below.

    The quarry is fascinating but difficult to photograph. You have to go and look directly at him 😉

    Have recently seen children again at the upper edge of the quarry .. Please dear parents, sometimes the edge is undercut, keep your distance.

    Again and again, in all weathers and in all seasons, a detour to the quarry is worthwhile. I find the access from above the most beautiful.

    The path under the bridge is currently not really passable. A lot of branches have been placed here.

    Quarry on the Ebersberg, where material for the lime works that were shut down in 1957 near the Springer train station was extracted. The limestone was deposited in a shallow, warm sea about 163 to 157 million years ago. The older rocks are the Heersumer strata (163 million years ago) and above (younger) is coral oolite (157 million). The quarry wall then shows a few million years of geological history from top to bottom. Formed in the sea, the layers of rock contain fossils of sea animals. The geological period in which this happened is called the Jurassic (201 to 145 million years ago, "Jurassic Park").
