Geocache Description:

Die Kürschnergrube ist ein alter Steinbruch mit einer tiefen Höhle im Leithagebirge, sie diente in Notzeiten wahrscheinlich als Zufluchtstätte der Bewohner von Eisenstadt. Der Name stammte angeblich von dem feinen Sand, den sich die Kürschner dort holten.

Wer lieber den schöneren, aber dafür längeren Weg wählt (ca. 4 km), parkt sein Auto bei der Gloriette, bei N 47° 51.177  E 016° 30.543. Danach kann man hier auch gleich ein gutes Glas Wein bei schöner Aussicht genießen.

Für die sportlicheren unter euch gibt es auch die Möglichkeit das Auto beim Gärtner Maly, bei N 47° 51.587  E 016° 31.529 abzustellen. Hier ist der Anstieg steiler, dafür dauert es nicht so lange (ca. 2 km).

The Kürschnergrube is an old mine with a deeply cave in the Leithagebirge. Former this cave was a refuge for the citizens of Eisenstadt. The furriers takes the fine sand out of this cave and so it was called Kürschnergrube.

It is an easíer but longer way (about 4 km) to get there. If you choose this one, park your car at Gloritte, at N 47° 51.177  E 016° 30.543. After your come back you have the possibility to drink a good glass of wine at the restaurant and enjoy the beautiful view.

For all athletics we have another way. This one is a little bit steeplier but only 2 km. If you choose this one, park your car at the market garden Maly, at N 47° 51.587  E 016° 31.529.
