Summary

"Rotgelbes Felsenland - Klettern in Mitteldeutschland", Geoquest Verlag, 2014, ISBN 978-3-00-023134-6

Description

The Hohburger Berge are series of quarz-porphyr hills rising up to 120m above the surrounding Leipzig Basin.

A site of intense mining in the 19th an early 20th centuries, the region contains many closed-down quarries and has received attention from aspiring alpinists beginning in the early 20th century.

In the modern era, several old quarries have been repurposed as popular sport climbing crags, thanks to the work of the DAV Leipzig and IG Klettern Halle-Löbejün.

For fans of unroped climbing, there are plenty of natural stone outcrops and strewn boulders with defined problems, nicknamed "Hohbleau".

Access issues

Due to (among other things) the closure of "Schwarze Wand" and "Zinkenberg" and the increased popularity of outdoor climbing, there have been access conflicts concerning the remaining quarries. Please behave considerately and respect local rules and restrictions to ensure that this area remains accessible!

Approach

If possible, leave the car at home and take bike + public transit to Wurzen or Eilenburg.
