The location is situated to the southwest of Arlon, in the southern part of Belgium, near Luxembourg. Take from the E411/E25 the exit Etalle. Follow The N87 in the direction of the French border. About 13 kilometres after Etalle, go to the right, in the direction of Robelmont. Robelmont is not on the roadsigns! The location is situated at the "Rue Berchiwe" road, but is largely overgrown. Around the corner there is another exposure.Drag the map and zoom in or out for the best view of this locality.
The location at the Rue the Moulin (at the red mark) is most worthwhile. You will find the ammonite Arites, mostly 5 cm in diameter. Further into the old quarry you will find the bivalve Oxites. Here you can search for fossils in the bottom of the old quarry. In 2007 bivalves were still common, but ammonites very rare.
