  • Ein 🐟 namens Wander

    Former Roman quarry from around 200 AD
    Many display boards provide information on site about this cultural and historical highlight.

    Due to the proximity to the city and the good view, you will meet many day-trippers here on weekends. There is another (and more beautiful) view from the refuge above.

    The region is particularly busy at weekends. At the quarry and at the lookout point, many paths intersect, so that in good weather you can meet many hikers and cyclists.

    A very interesting place; Here the Romans hit plates from the stone and built the first roads on the Rhine.

    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.

    In contrast to the (red) quarries in the middle of the Palatinate Forest, sandstone on the Haardt edge is white-yellow!On a beautiful information board, many inscriptions / pictures that can be found on the walls are explained and marked with red arrows on the walls of the quarry. Horse pictures are particularly easy to recognize. These rock carvings come from the Roman legionaries who worked here in the quarry.Also carved in the stone: a large memorial plaque for the Bad Dürkheim soldiers who died in World War I, and all their names.

    At the right time of year you can see here Mountain and string newts, common frogs and toads. Of course you shouldn't take the animals in your hand. If an expert does this, you are of course happy to take the photos with you ... ;-)

    In the footsteps of the Romans in Bad Dürkheim: In the 2nd and 3rd centuries there was a Roman quarry here. In addition, you have a great view of Bad Dürkheim from here.

    Very interesting and made very clear on the basis of various boards. When the weather is clear, the view of Bad Dürkheim is also very worthwhile!
