Try your luck and dig for gemstones. The gemstone fields at the Historic Weiherschleife (Grinding Mill), at the Gemstone Mines, in the Gemstone Adventure World or at the Lemke Agate Heap are an invitation to search for one or the other sparkling treasure - with guaranteed success. A little treasure to take home with you!
A great offer, especially for children and adolescents, is sand sifting at the mineral digging site of the historic grinding mill. The covered sand field is stocked with minerals from all over the world. Afterwards, the gemstones get their final polish on large sandstone polishing wheels. There is also an old, original polishing wheel on display. The two-hour gemstone adventure includes the “cracking“ of a gemstone geode
