Stone layers
Near the town of Solnhofen in the Altmühltal / Bavaria there are large quarries in which slab limestone is extracted.
In the past, the best quality lithography stones were mined here. In this area the fossilization of the primeval bird "Archeopteryx lithographica" has been found between the layers of stone.

I have heard about this place, it must be very interessant to visit. The pictures of fossils "birds" are really beautiful. And this "mille-feuille" is also fascinationg.
