A themed walk to the “Teiser Kuglen” minerals discovery site, quarry in an ancient volcanic cone, with lots of botanical and geological information. A Teiser Kugelen digging gallery, “humming stones” and “ringing stones”, invite you to spend some time and experiment. In Tiso, there is also an interesting mineral museum that is worth seeing (visiting times).
