Héikräiz – viewpoint

On the plateau on top of the Luxembourg Sandstone out­crop the mostly agriculturally used “Marls and Limestones of Strassen”. The location provides a 360 degree view, typical for these types of plateau. The area is deeply incised by rivers and creeks, which have their origin in temporarily pouring springs related to the banks of limestone. The fossil oyster Gryphaea arcuata is abundant here and can be observed in several places on the surrounding fields.
