Gerolstein Natural History Museum - journeys in time on the Eifelsteig


Since 1987, the Natural History Museum has been located in the old town hall (built in 1710) of the fountain town Gerolstein and contains selected exhibits from times long gone by. Under the motto "Time travel on the Eifelsteig", the interesting exhibition shows and explains, among other things, the enormous volcanic forces that led to the creation of today's breathtaking landscape around the premium hiking trail millions of years ago. Theme tours, especially for children, provide a fascinating insight into the fiery history of the volcano Eifel, duration approx. 1 hour, price 30,00 €/group excl. Admission per participant. Different types of rock, fossils, the replica of the beech hole cave, the interactive forest section and the fascinatingly colourful collection of butterflies in the attic of the baroque building guarantee an interesting variety every step of the way.

Entrance fees: adults 3,00 €, children & students 1,00 €, pensioners 2,00 €, groups 2,00 €/person
