Geoportal Röcknitz
Exhibition “Zeit-Wandel-Stein – Eventful History of a Landscape“

The exhibition “Zeit – Wandel – Stein. Eventful History of a Landscape” allows you to dive deep into a long gone world of volcano eruptions, sea level rises and flooding and ice ages. Here you can see how porphyry, china clay, and lignite are formed and appreciate the gigantic forces that formed the face of the landscape of the Porphyryland Geopark and Muldeland. The exhibition begins with an impressive video animation about the super-volcanic eruptions around 290 million years ago.
