Location description

These quarries (Grosse-Hundfeld) were closed a long while ago, but in the past many fossils were found here in the exposed sediments. The fossils are from the Barremian, lower Aptian, part of the lower Cretaceous period. The quarries were closed down in 1985, and have been used as a rubbish dump. Today it is a golfcourse.
