More informations

Landschaftspark Binntal - From the car park in Fäld, it takes 20-30 minutes to get to the Lengenbach mineral quarry, which is one of the ten most famous places in the world where minerals are found.

In front of the Lengenbach quarry there is a "knocking spot" where children like to search for cat gold. Hammer and chisel for "stone beating" can be rented at the Restaurant Imfeld in Fäld. The chances of finding them depend on the current mining in the quarry.


The chances of finding are very low at the moment, as no mining could be done from the mine.
