Follow the tracks of the dinosaur from the Marina Mücheln to the old town of Mücheln.

The footprints end directly in front of the portal of the cultural-historical centre at the market. On two floors you will find information about the geological foundations of the Geiseltal and the famous fossils born in this coal deposit, about mining as well as the eventful history of the town. From the worldwide known fossil finds of the Geiseltal, the settlement history at the time of the sky disk, the blossoming in the Middle Ages, the destruction in the 30-year war, the brown coal open-cast mining, the flooding of the largest artificial lake in Germany, the Geiseltalsee, to the transformation into a tourist region, there is a lot to explore and discover.

In combination with the unique natural landscape, the historic old town, the cultural and historical environment, the Geiseltalsee and the constantly expanding offers, Mücheln enchants with its charm. Let yourself be carried away and get to know Mücheln better. 

Living city history
In order to preserve Mücheln's history as a mining town, the old post office was converted into an information centre with a regional museum. During a guided tour or a tour with the night watchman you will hear amusing and exciting things about Mücheln's past. Descend into the vaulted cellar of the town hall, where the Müchelner beer was once stored, which many a citizen had fallen for. Listen to the story about the last great fire in 1718 and the legendary role beer played in it.

Also visit the baroque garden, the landscape park with the moated castle in Ortisei as well as the Geiselquelle, the Romanesque church and the landscape conservation area around St. Micheln.

Even more exciting stories are told by the Sagestones, which can be found at numerous locations in the Geiseltal and are just waiting to reveal their secret.
