Geotopes – insights into local geology

In the nature park, the link between geology and the natural and cultural heritage is clearly visible and thus easy to experience as well. Numerous examples of human activities in the region can be shown for these links, for instance, since the Stone Age (Paleolithic). That’s why the landscape can be regarded as a valuable historical archive. There are also numerous links between the plant world and geology. Plants reflect the local rocks in the subsoil, the characteristics of the soil and aspects of the landscape (such as the orientation of the slope).

All interesting places and objects related to geology are described here as a geotope.
