Tips

  • Vanessa Kopp

    Geological organs are vertical cavities that are created by the weathering of soft, fine-grained material. This happened during the Günz cold period around 600,000 years ago. An information board explains more about the natural phenomenon.

    Use the parking lot at the Schachenweiher.
    Tour was not completely recorded, lasted almost 3 hours, i.e. in fact it was not a 7, but rather 12 km distance.

    Interesting Nagelfluh formations formed in the last ice age.

  • Gerhard H.

    A mighty rock from Nagelfluh, which the Allgäu people sometimes call Herrgottsbeton, houses the geological organs. The name alone gives an idea of what to expect here: rock formations reminiscent of organs. It is exactly like that. The age of the formations should be interesting - the ravages of time have been gnawing at the rock for more than half a million years. Penetrating water thus had plenty of time to soften the hard rock, to loosen it and, by flushing it out, to create pipes up to 15 m high, which stand next to each other like organ pipes.
