The Rock Sea
Due to its appearance, the Rock Sea is divided into three parts: the 'Big Rock Sea', the 'Small Rock Sea' and the 'Paradise'. Together, the parts extend 700 meters in length and 100 to 200 meters in width. With the start of the State Garden Show 2010, the Felsenmeer has also become more exciting and eventful than ever before. This is because a free-floating, wave-shaped bridge and a viewing platform open up completely new views of the "National Geotope" to visitors. The Felsenmeer can only be visited via the designated paths, which you are not allowed to leave under any circumstances, as there are many deep crevices and fissures throughout the area. You also protect the flora and fauna of this sensitive geotope. There are information boards at the entrances to the Felsenmeer. The 'Panorama Trail' designated there will lead you to the most impressive viewpoints.
