Krufter Bachtal

Krufter Bachtal

Kretz

The extensive Krufter Bachtal, which essentially consists of three parts, is not only dedicated to the eruption of the Laacher See volcano almost 13,000 years ago and the formation of the tuff.
The use of the tuff stone since Roman times, the history of the old church in Plaidt and the wealth resulting from the mining activities are vividly presented here.
