In fact, the reddish Adnet marble is in the geological sense not a marble, but a limestone. However, that does not detract from the beauty of the stone. Starting from the marble Museum, where you can see the many facets of the stone and archaeological finds, the designated marble trail leads to officially closed but still active quarries.
Anyone wishing to make the walk a little more fun and unique, should book an Alpaca tour with Daniel Schartner. With a leisurely pace and very easily, these animals with the funny hair take you over hill and dale, and through the middle of the forest. This also takes you past one of the still active quarries.
The Adnet Moss, a 40-hectare fen and litter meadow area, which is designated as a protected landscape, is also an interesting place to visit.
The Schlenken, the Adnet Mountain, is ideal for hiking in summer and in winter. The 1,648m high mountain belongs to the Osterhorn mountain range. It is unique in that the Schlenken area is criss-crossed by numerous caves. The most famous of these is the Schlenken passage cavern. In it, bear’s bones as well as stone and bone tools from the time of the Neanderthals, have been found.
