This process usually causes a loss of volume of the seams, which is compensated by sliding or lowering of overlying sediment layers. Later on the cavity was made accessible to the public by creating safe entries. Im Bereich der steilen bis senkrechten Schichtstellungen konnte die Volumendifferenz nicht kompensiert werden.
