Built around a glacial pothole from the last glacial period, Glacier Garden (Gletschergarten) outlines the town's history. Fossilized mussels and palm leaves tell the story of how the area sits on what was a subtropical beach 20 million years ago. A multimedia show and interactive exhibits recap the history of the planet and the city itself. View the oldest large-scale mountain relief in the world. Explore the surrounding park with its walking paths and plants from different periods. On you way, notice different versions of yourself when you pass through the mirror maze, and then climb the observation tower for a panoramic view of the city.
