Once the world’s most renowned region for cement production, it is nowadays home to internationally operating and innovative state-of-the-art industries, yet an idyllic city to live in. Many former quarries have been converted into beautiful landscapes with picturesque biotopes and lakes that allow true experiences of nature. Old industrial buildings are the remainders of some of the formerly 33 cement works, two of which are still active to date.
