Geopark Info-Center Oettingen

Illustrated info-panels convey everything worth knowing about the German National Geoparks, the UNESCO Global Geopark Ries and the Ries Crater’s special rocks. In addition to the standard themes, the Info-Center Oettingen is dedicated to a very special subject: With the help of numerous exhibits and display panels, as well as a model of the meteorite crater, it impressively illustrates the eventful history of the settlement of the northern Ries.

The interactive Geological History of the Earth and the impact animation are also available here.
