On the trail and in the park itself, you can expect to find, among other things, a Tyrannosaurus, a Diplodocus, a Stegosaurus and an aquatic dinosaur is even lurking in the reservoir! The trail is well-developed and suitable for pushchairs. At the beginning of the trail, there is a Triassic Beach (mini sea, sand beach ,...) as well as the viewing platform, which hangs almost 70 metres over the abyss!

Across hills, rocks and coral. You can warm up best on the Steinplatte for your scientific discovery tour. The prehistoric time is not tediously studied here, but climbed, dug up and played on! How did the Trias get it's name? What exactly is karst? What does coral look like up close? None of these questions will go unanswered on your tour! Just look through binoculars on the Triassic Trail, solve puzzles and - most importantly: Stay curious! In addition to this, on the Triassic Trail you can discover several life-sized dinosaurs, such as the Tyrannosaurus Rex, the Tricerotops and the Mosasaurus. Furthermore, exciting locations and a reservoir with an aquatic dinosaur and a Pterodactyl also await you. On top of the mountain you can also visit Fischers coral garden, where you can still find fossilised coral to this day.
