    Very high quality clay has been mined there since the mid-16th century. It is one of the oldest clay mines in Germany [work there was discontinued in 2011

    The mine was closed on 16.12.2011. The flow rate was 250 - 300 t per month. The Klingenberger clay was one of the best in the world because of its quality. He was u.a. Sold as a pencil tone in pencils around the world.

    At the rest area there are old trams to admire. In addition, there is a pit entrance here. This one is closed.

    A piece of history that I would have liked to have seen underground.

    I think it's really great that you can also read about the history of the Tonwerk at this location.

    A building from a bygone era in which the clay extracted from the mountain was in great demand. 😃

    A special tone was mined here for a long time. The plant has long been shut down, but remains of the plant can still be seen. Opposite is the bird of prey station where birds of prey are reared and injured people are cared for.
