sand extractionOn the south side of the rock massif of Kleinhennersdorfer Steine is the now about 20 meters long and 15 meters wide Lichthöhle, a Schichtfugenhöhle. The current size of the cave was preserved when, around 1870, the Königstein resident Friedrich Herrmann Hempel commenced the commercial mining of sandstone, which was crushed and ground and sold as scouring sand to guest houses and soap factories. The two collapse caves on the south side were significantly increased by the degradation, so that the extraction was later prohibited by the authorities. On December 17, 1918 Hempel lost his life by the collapse of a rock in the forecourt.
