How do I recognize amber? Where can I find fossils and what can I recognize in the stones themselves? How do I polish stones? Discover the world of geosciences together with your parents in one of the most exciting gravel pits. Four hours of fun and hands-on experiments with sand and stones. Of course you can take your own finds with you.

Discover the world of geosciences together with your parents in one of the most exciting gravel pits. Four hours of fun and hands-on experiments with sand and stones. Of course you can take your own finds with you. Previous knowledge is not necessary for these excursions, and sturdy shoes, appropriate clothing for the weather, a bucket or other collection container and plenty of drinks are recommended. Incidentally, rain is no reason to cancel the excursion - on the contrary: if the stones are wet, you can see the different colors and structures particularly well.

Meeting point: 53.41970982589258, 10.64188383119875, Zweedorf Süd gravel works, Butendiek / Zweedorfer Weg, 19258 Schwanheide-Zweedorf, in front of the barrier to the gravel works

Directions: Coming from Zweedorf on the Butendiek road between Zweedorf and 19258 Nostorf. Coming from Nostorf it is the Zweedorfer Weg.

The gravel works are still in operation. They may therefore only be entered with special permission and by trained personnel. Participants are aware that the sorting machines, the sand and gravel piles and the water areas can pose particular dangers. For this reason, participants may only stay where this is expressly permitted. Participation in the excursion, entering the gravel works and staying there, as well as participation in all activities, is exclusively and unconditionally at the participant's own risk. The participant waives his/her right to hold the excursion leader or the gravel plant operator liable for any damage. The site is under video surveillance.
