Schlosspark mit Schlösschen & Grottenpavillon

Saffig

The park goes back to the Count von der Leyen.
Later, Joseph Clemens Lenné had the park rebuilt with his brother Peter Joseph and ran a plant breeding business.

In addition to the old trees, baroque pavilions, the so-called castle around 1750 and the grotto pavilion with pond, have been preserved. In the small castle, an exhibition shows the changes in institutional psychiatry since the 19th century and exhibits on the history of the village.

Opening times Park & Schlösschen:
Exhibition in the castle:

Tuffsteinzentrum Weibern

If you would like to learn more about tuff, you can find out more about this rock and its possible uses here in the "Weiberner Schaufenster" on the left. The path up to the right also takes you in just a few minutes to the open-air exhibition at the stone saw house, where, among other things, a stone saw and a crane clearly illustrate the work processes involved in the tuff stone. The tourist information offers regular guided tours to the impressive Weiberner tuff quarries and - like the local stone cutters' association - organizes hands-on stone hammering courses, in which individual works of art are created from volcanic rock.

Gleitfalte am Dachsbusch

The mining of volcanic material on the Dachsbusch ate deeper and deeper into the old cinder cone. It gives us an insight into the volcanic and climatic history. The volcanic layers show how they slipped during a cold period about 150,000 years ago due to the alternation of thawing and freezing. The badger bush does not need to fear further depletion, as the area is now a nature reserve. Follow the signposted path to the right up to the gliding fold, where you will find more information.
