Bike Touring Highlight
When the demand for sand and gravel increased sharply in the 1950s as part of the economic miracle, many gravel pits were built on the Rhine plain. The first attempts to do this were also made in Staffort in 1956, especially since the taxes paid by the gravel pit users were a welcome income for the communities. Finally, in 1965, the Illingen company Wilhelm Sämann received approval for gravel mining in the Stafforter Gewann Gänsweide. This mining was carried out very successfully until the beginning of this century, resulting in a lake about 15 hectares in size and up to 17 meters deep.Source: ka.stadtwiki.net/Baggersee_Staffort
