Meteorite Crater Steinheim am Albuch

Meteorkrater Steinheimer Becken (Eberhard Stabenow)This area of land was shaken by the impact of two meteorites 15 million years ago. They have left behind one crater in the eastern Alb in Steinheim and one in Ries. The geological events are presented clearly in the museum. You can hike along the geological path or the meteor crater path. If you are a sporting enthusiast, you can cycle along the cycle path from crater to crater into Nördlinger Ries.
