The new Naturepark exhibition at the Inselsberg offers insights into the recent and fossil environments of the Great Inselsberg and presents interesting and astonishing facts about geological and biological aspects of the peak and its surrounding. From the observation deck you will have a breathtaking view of the Thuringian landscape.
