Informationen zu Fossil Exhibition

Since the 1980s, Mölten (Meltina) has been richer by one more attraction. Almost by accident, a unique find was stumbled upon in 1980 when the town administration began to use the quarry at the Mölten Pass. In subsequent years, under the energetic leadership of the then mayor and mineral collector, Franz Josef Karnutsch, a separate, freely accessible area for the presentation of the fossils came into being. The fossil exhibition displays the most beautiful finds from the area, whose landscape – steep slopes, gorges and rock walls down to the Adige Valley, gentle mountain pastures, forests and Alpine meadows up to the ‘Stoanerne Mandln’ (Stone Men) – is the result of a geological process over millions of years. The petrified wood fossils, which are around 260 million years old and come for the most part from the quarry at the Möltner Pass, are especially worthy of attention.
