Retaining wall lower work yard

Dear visitors,

what you see is the retaining wall of the so-called lower work yard. The outer masonry made of natural stone is detaching from the concrete wall behind it in many places. Penetrating water has expanded during winter frost and split off the natural stones. The meter-thick concrete wall is damaged on the surface, but its stability remains intact.

What are we doing? We raised funds because the Rammelsberg World Heritage Site cannot pay for the renovation on its own. We coordinate with the monument protection authorities and planning offices to rebuild the more than 80-year-old wall as we found it. Civil engineers plan with new construction technology to prevent further damage.

You can't see that! That happens in the background in the offices and in many coordination meetings. And unfortunately that takes time!

We'll be there soon! In the spring of 2023, the first surface of the masonry will be renovated. If the planned construction techniques work, the entire wall will be renovated in sections over the next few years.
