Kröver Felssturz

  • Kröv
On the crest of the Moselle slope opposite Kröv, it was discovered in December 1991 that a rock body of a total of 90,000 m³ was threatening to break off. This could have triggered an enormous tidal wave that would have flooded parts of the village of Kröv. The rock was observed for months and as the cracks and crevices widened, the rock masses were brought down in a controlled manner by blasting on 23 May 1992. The blasting was a topic in the media for many days. Even television reported on it. There was no damage or injuries. The interest of the population in this event was enormous and many onlookers besieged the Moselle village during these days. The blasted rock is still visible, but may not be walked on.
