Evolutionary path

Evolutionary path

Along the Ammelbach and the Wiesenbrunnenbach in Ottersheim leads a path about one kilometre long, along which 20 information boards have been set up to provide information about the nature and background of the development of life on our earth.

The evolutionary path represents all the major stages in the 4.1 billion year history of life. This includes the First Traces of Life, photosynthesis, the land walk of vertebrates, the time of the dinosaurs, the appearance of the human-like hominids up to modern man.
