From the tropical seas to the coveted stone

Lindlar is ‘steinreich’ (stone-rich), even if the people have never earned more than anywhere else. However, its quarries are rich in stone, from where Lindlar greywacke has been extracted for centuries. Today, it is in demand all over the world as a building material. The new "Steinhauerpfad" (Stone Cutter’s Trail) follows in the footsteps of the people who have extracted and processed the stone for centuries, from the centre of Lindlar up to the stone quarries on Brungerst. 

Two audio stations along the way bring this stretch of the trail to life. You can listen to how the stone cutters used to live and work.
