North Sea Bernsteinmuseum


At the Bernsteinmuseum (amber museum) you can learn almost everything about the popular stone from the Harz Mountains and where it can be found on the North Sea coast. The main attraction is the inclusions cabinet, which displays 45 to 50 million year old insect inclusions. During the school holidays there are also lapidary courses for children, where they can make their own piece of jewellery from an inconspicuous rough stone.
