“Leistädter Sandstein” gains much of its beauty and its friendly appearance from warm colours ranging from beige through to pale yellow and yellow. Subtle variations in texture and irregular brown spots enliven its overall look.
It has proven to be a superb material for outdoor applications and façade installations thanks to its lastingly good physical and technical properties and its ability to stand up to frost, acid rain and air pollution.
The quarry has been in operation since the 9th century. It is still one of the most productive and reliable quarries for fine to medium-grained yellow sandstone in Germany today.
Regional “Leistädter Sandstein” is a highly sustainable building material.
