Geopark Infocentre Bad Boll/Göppingen
Discover, bathe in and chip out the Earth's history
The towns of Bad Boll and Göppingen have joined together with the Bad Boll Jurassic Fango Plant to offer a variety of different services for tourists enabling them to explore the region‘s nature and geology and benefit from local spa treatments. The aim is to show how the various aspects of the region are linked: the local geology of the region and its natural resources such as mineralized waters, Jurassic Fango, sulphuric and thermal mineral waters, the beauty of the scenery and the regional products and tourism.
The three partners provide a number of activities, like digging for fossils in excavated material, exploring of the “Swabian Volcano” and the typelocality of the “Pliensbachian”, full-time workshops which combine earth history and regional gastronomy. The services of the centre are an incentive to visitors to discover the land of the Hohenstaufen dynasty.
