General information

Branch of the Palatinate Museum of Natural History Bad Dürkheim. The museum aims to give visitors an understanding of the geological and more recent history of the Palatinate mountain region. GEOSKOP not only has fossils dating back 290 million years, it also documents the development of mining in the region. The museum takes us back 290 million years to the Rotliegend, an era in the age of the Permian. The pre-historic Palatinate is located far south, near the equator line and has a tropical, warm and humid climate. Sharks up to three metres in length and large crocodile-like amphibians swim in the freshwater lakes. The banks are lined with tall horsetail trees and huge fern and later conifer trees cover large swathes of the landscape...

Bookings for guided tours of the museum can be made at any time. There are also combined castle and museum tours.
