Description

This popular destination for day trippers takes visitors back in history to a time when the Weinviertel was covered by a tropical sea. Stand-out exhibits include the world’s largest fossilised oyster reef with 15,000 giant oysters as well as the largest pearl in the world. The views from the top of the Fossil World’s famous landmark – a 16-metre-high viewing platform in the shape of a tower snail – extend deep into the rest of the Weinviertel below. This attraction is also great for budding explorers who can let their hair down and make new friends at the adventure playground. The sandpit with fossil field is a special highlight – here visitors can get to work looking for sharks’ teeth and other fossils armed with a bucket, sieve and hand tools like seasoned professionals.
