Stenzelberg

Stenzelberg

Not much has remained of Mount Stenzelberg. Already in the Middle Ages the Cistercian monks of Heisterbach gained stones there to build their enormous abbey church. For centuries the quarry continued, even after 1908, when the quarries on Mount Petersberg were closed. In 1922 the Seven Mountains were put under preservation order, and in 1931 the quarry at Mount Stenzelberg was finally closed.
