Cardboard factory Inden
The old town of Inden, once stated as the most beautiful
town of the region, doesn't exist any more. Soon even the soil it was
build on will be dug away to reach the lignite (Braunkohl) underneath.
At the moment only the old cardboard factory still stands, the result
of 10 years of negotiation between the factory management and Rheinbraun
(the mining company), who agreed to move the edge of the projected mine
400 metres northward. However no agreement could be reached over financial
compensation and the factory closed down in 2002, after almost two and
a half century of paper production.
