Our webcam on the roof of the Technical Center shows you the Volcanic Eifel panorama towards Roth

On the right side of the picture border rises, directly on the Eifelsteig, the "Rother Kopf". This is a 566 meters above sea level high, aligned in a north-south direction basalt cone, which provides deep insights into the interior of the Volcanic Eifel.

Equipped with a flashlight and sturdy shoes, one can get an impression of the hardships that the stonecutters had with the production of the millstones in the local millstone caves. The stones were almost completely cut out. It remains unclear how they came then from the rock face. It is believed that after the chiselling a bridge was left over. Then wooden wedges were driven behind and brought to swell with water. This natural explosive force then broke the stone.


The picture will be updated in minutes.
