Fossil visitor quarry Mühlheim

The fossil visitor quarry Mühlheim is beautifully located in the western part of the Altmühltal Nature Park in the Gailachtal Valley, in the middle between Donauwörth, Weißenburg, Neuburg and Eichstätt.

On an area of 5000 square meters, fossil hunters can go in search of fossils in the famous Mörnsheim strata.  The mining and splitting of limestone slabs is explained by expert personnel. The necessary tools can be borrowed. For smaller fossils, such as ammonites, fish, crabs, plants, finds are guaranteed.

For groups or school classes it is also possible to book a supervision with instruction in geology and the quarry.

In addition, a barbecue area and seating in rustic stone crusher huts are available.

Drinks and fossils are offered in our own local fossil shop.

On request, the location can also be booked for children's birthdays.

Integrated in the quarry are a quarry nature trail and a mobile museum where the most important finds are presented in the form of copies.
