Natural history exhibition and geological outcrop
- Implementation of the design concept for the southern rim of the emerging Klinge Lake in close cooperation with the "Heimatverein Klinge e.V.".
- The design and operation of the "Eem deposit Klinge" as an open-air museum "Zeitsprung".
- Promotion of soft tourism along the Fürst Pückler cycle path here
Kobi - the little house ghost - is at home in the museum. He lives there in a slipper under the stove. At midnight, he eavesdrops on the old museum pieces when they tell stories about the past. He tells these exciting stories to the museum staff, who then pass them on to the children - stories from the old, old days.
Fossils up close and personal - a special kind of leap back in time to the Eemian warm period
The open-air museum shows a picture-book sequence of layers from the last two ice ages and the intervening Eemian warm period in a very special way. Many fossil animal and plant finds have made this area famous since 1891. You can experience history at first hand in the walk-through archaeological monument, along the circular path, on the adventure trail and in the dome building, and transport yourself back to the Eemian warm period about 128,000-115,000 years ago. Many information boards can be explored, and in the "Fossilium" - our excavation workshop - fossils can be searched for under guidance. Just like real geologists do, all the finds are pasted, identified and labelled on an excavation report.
