The ground in and around the city contains rich layers of well preserved fossils (or Lagerstätten) of the Jurassic period. The fossils are found in the 180 million year old Posidonia Shale and displayed in the local Museum Hauff as well as museums around the world. This fossil locale is important for its examples of skin cover showing parts of the animal rarely found.
