Extraordinary fossil rocks can be seen in the Visitor Centre. Movies and films complement the exhibi-tion and kids can experience in the lab room
Following the successful search for saurian tracks in 2013 three representatives of the earliest ter-restrail vertebrates and tetrapods were discovered in the Geopark. They belong to therapsids, or "mammal-like reptiles“ which gave rise to the true dinosaurs.
They truly belong to the oldest and first traces of saurians and terrestrail vertebrates in Austria.
In fact, one of the findings has been proven as the only one in the whole Alps.

Petrified forests are worldwide wonders. The Geopark Carnic Alps at the village of Laas belongs to one of these monuments
During the project phase of the Geopark Carnic Alps in 2012/2013 these occurrences were made ac-cessible and party excavated for the public.

In the year 2011 the Geotrails Garnitzen Gorge, Nassfeld, Lake Zollner and Lake Wolayer were newly designed and tri-lingually labelled (German, Italian, English). A new Geotrail, i.e. Laas, which actu-ally represents a geo-cultural walkig trail, was established around the petrified trees. The Geotrail at Plöcken Pass leading to the famous Cellon avalanche gully was yet not renewed.

With much pleasure we present the new "Geotrail Guide", which summarizes all new trails and which offers additional information.d
We are looking forward to seeing you at the Geopark!
