Capital block: Huge boulder for the park in Bad Tölz

The redesign of the Taubenloch in Bad Tölz, an inner-city park directly on the banks of the Isar, is nearing completion. In accordance with the concept for the park, local boulders are distributed as seating. In the entrance area, near Säggasse, a particularly large erratic block has now been positioned as an eye-catcher.

Measuring 4 x 2 x 2 meters, the stone block was found at a depth of three meters during construction work in Bad Tölz. The fact that such a large stone was transported by glaciers to the Bavarian foothills of the Alps near Bad Tölz during the past ice age is a rarity. Accordingly, in the future a plaque will point out the history and the location of the stone.

On Friday, December 4, 2020, the 35-ton block of dolomite stone was transported to its new destination at the Taubenloch with the help of a special transport and a heavy-duty crane. There it will welcome visitors in the future and serve as a climbing and sitting area for large and small children.

In addition to Mayor Ingo Mehner and City Construction Manager Florian Ernst, Franz Damm and Bernd Großmann from the Keller Damm Kollegen office, numerous onlookers and the press were also on site.
