Dinosaur Footprints


The 170-million-year-old dinosaur footprints were made in what was then soft clay by a three-toed dinosaur that walked on its hind legs – probably a forerunner of modern birds. The footprints, which were declared a national monument in 1951, are on a farm 29km from Kalkfeld, just off route D2414.
