The Kuelscheier is a narrow, pitch-dark rock crevice in the Luxembourg sandstone. It runs over a distance of about 100 metres parallel to the valley of the Härdbaach stream. The nearby Rittergang and the Déiwepëtz are also such crevices. They opened up because huge blocks of rock along fissures detached from the rock face and slipped a little way down the valley.
Opposite the Kuelscheier, groundwater gushes out at one of the region’s numerous springs. It is fed by water that seeped away as rainwater on the plateau. The water that has seeped away collects at the base of the sandstone and flows over clayey marl strata to the springs.
