Op the fields south of the village of Haller (Beaufort) in Petite Suisse in Luxembourg you can find fossils from the Lias (part of the lower Jurassic period).
When the field are plowed it is easy to find the fossils. When there are crops on the fields do not walk in the fields!!! In the field on top of the 'hill', you can find the most Gryphaea fossils. This location is very suitable for children.
