This limestone has been used to build the Brandenburg Gate, Sanssouci Palace in Potsdam, Berlin's Olympic Stadium and many other important buildings in Berlin and Brandenburg.
Now it's a very huge open museum, in the 17-acre historic landscape of the museum park you'll experience the history of the mining and processing of limestone and the building of a modern cement industry.
The buildings, facilities and open spaces are accessible for all visitors and they give a lot of space for art & culture, for field trips, seminars and workshops, for parties and for socializing.
The shaft furnace battery with 18 ovens Rüdersdorfer is a unique example of the transition from the centuries-old craft of lime burning on industrial production in large plants. The facility was built in only six years between 1871 and 1877.
