Museumspark for Limestone, Mining and Cement Industry (Rüdersdorf)

The Rüdersdorfer limestone deposit is the largest of its kind in Central Europe.
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.
