A day for young and old stone researchers, fossil lovers and music lovers! We open our annual exhibition "Im Steinbruch der Zeit. Erdgeschichten und die Anfänge der Geologie" with a geological family program for discovering, puzzling and ear-tipping. In the "treasure trove" in front of the Cabinet of Artefacts and Natural Curiosities, rocks are explored and determined, real fossils can be uncovered on the meadow in front of the HIstoric Orphanage, and at the end of the day you can listen to enigmatic and beautiful music on millions of years old stones at the family concert with Olaf Pyras.
Due to the Corona pandemic, the number of participants for the individual offers is limited. Therefore please make sure to register in advance. Please use the contact form of the Information Center or call us directly.
The organic bakers Fischer and Kirn provide for the physical well-being in the historical bakery. But again the wood oven is heated and the popular Francke bread is pushed into the oven. In the sales are also coffee, cake and bread specialities of the bio bakers.
