The Kriemhildenstuhl is a Roman quarry. It is located in the north of Bad Dürkheim. You can reach it on foot via the Kastaniendelle or the shepherd's waiting area.
The site has been known since the Middle Ages and was therefore associated with the legendary world of the Nibelungenlied. Excavations took place in 1884, 1893/94, 1916/1917, 1934/1935 and 1937-39.
They show a Roman quarry almost completely cleared of debris, which lies about 150 m above the city. On its rock walls, the Kriemhildenstuhl carries many signs that come from Roman legionaries and quarry works.
