As the active part of the quarry may still not be entered without guidance and because of safety reasons, the path was separated into two parts:
2.2 km is accessible for the public
2.8 km can only be walked on in the scope of guidance
Furthermore, a short path is freely accessible, which leads to a newly constructed viewing platform, from where the active quarry can be seen. Along the way large-sized information boards give information on the fields biology, geology, historical mining, agriculture and about the active mining.
The point of the project was to let young people (from 1st, 2nd, 5th and 6th grade) explore the special features of nature in extraction sites and take them in with all senses. The children then deepened the experience by painting pictures of what they had seen and replicating habitats.
