    Last year I was above Hann. Münden run in the forest and came across this old quarry
    Today I wanted to take a closer look around there and look at this very wild, rustic, rugged and overgrown area
    On the Internet I found out that this is the old quarry at Kattenbühl, where building stones and millstones were produced from the Middle Ages until the end of the 19th century. ⚒
    The well-known millstones were once an export hit due to their excellent quality. In the year 1896, 600-800 stones were broken at Kattenbühl by around 70-80 workers and processed into millstones. A stone on the Rundweg② bears witness to this (Fig. 27).
    Unfortunately, there are no more mining sites to be found, but the wall-like structures of the old quarry have something fascinating, almost fairytale-like about them.

    Great pictures 👍 I hiked there too but a quarry and I didn't know the story behind it. Learned something again.
