“Fascinating geological insights”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

Many tens of thousands of years ago, a meteorite smashed into what is no southern Germany and produce the Ries, a huge crater whose features still survive. The museum provides geological information about the Ries but also about meteorites and the role they've played in the development of the world, Very worthwhile; I recommend a visit if you are in the area.
