Wachenzeller Dolomit

Wachenzeller Dolomit is over 140 million years old. These partially dolomitic limestones are still being excavated today from quarries located between Kelheim and Ingolstadt.

A unique characteristic of Wachenzeller Dolomit is that it is the only stone that is 100 % frost resistant making it ideal for the use of not only facades, but also pedestrian walkways or other permanent surfaces that are forced to endure heavy winter salting. It is an excellent alternative to granite.
