Hammering place

The hammering place is the outstanding experience for big and small explorers! In a very simple way visitors can find ammonites and other fossils from the posidonian shale with an age of 180 millionen years. Fossils found oneself of course can be taken home.
The preparator Fritz Lörcher gives on-the-spot support and answers questions on geology and fossils.

Mining playground

The optimal place for children to romp around! The mining playground includes a primeval area made of wood, rock and gravel as well as of 8 m high towers to climb and to slip.  Further highlights are the beton landscape, the well of tides and various transport equipments.
