Since centuries, geology has an important tradition in Aalen, whereof visitors can inform themselves in the wonderful museum. On three levels the collection gives excellent insights into the structure of the Swabian escarpment. Clearly arranged presentation boards mediate geological knowledge and explain fossil organisms. Especially breath taking is the variety of fossils of dinosaurs, cuttlefishes, sea lillies and giant ammonites.
