Walk through the Ries crater in search of the cosmic catastrophe. (Bavarian Swabia | Bavarian Danube-Ries holiday region)
At every step you come across traces of ancient archaeology and geology – which is not surprising, as the 7-Hill Trail leads through the Ries crater and along its southern edge. But what actually happened when the meteorite struck? And what evidence of that event can still be seen today? Surrounded by nature and passing by Wörnitz and Eger, seven event panels along the way provide information about the geology, settlement history and former exploitation of the landscape flanking the trail.
