Thanks to the commitment of Sto and VeroStone the exterior facade of the new centre for indoor climbing in Eichstaett was realized with natural stones
The cube-shaped building is located in the midst of the Jura quarries, in close vicinity of VeroStone, who provided significant support to the builders. The Northern and Southern side have an impressive natural stone facade in a combination of VeroStone® Jura Cream, Jura Gold und Fossil Smoke.
