Description

In Laas there is a natural monument of the highest rank: the petrified tree of Laas, the largest plant fossil in Austria.

Apart from this geological highlight, the diversity of the local rocks makes an exciting story tell.

A story that has been forgotten in recent decades, but which has lost none of its topicality.

It is the story of a village community that could only unfold because the geological conditions offered it favourable conditions and because the people knew how to use the rocks.
