Over stick, stone & coral. It’s best to warm up for your scientific exploration tour on the Steinplatte. The prehistoric times are not laboriously crammed here, but climbed, dug and played with!
How did the Triassic get its name? What actually is karst? And what do corals look like up close? None of these questions will go unanswered on your tour!
In summer, a 4 km long circular trail leads through the Triassic Park (suitable for strollers), in winter the groomed trail leads about 1 km to the viewing platform.
