    The abrupt transition from the lowlands to the Alps makes the tremendous happenings visible, to which the entire Alps owe their existence: Immediately behind the "Bergstüberl" tavern, the first alpine slope shoots up from the ground and, looking at the plate tectonics, hits Africa on Europe. An epic event that continues to this day and lets the Alps grow by about a millimeter per year: whole deep-sea women, reefs, sediments come up with it. The resulting clutter of layers, which has been particularly wild here on the northern edge of the Alps, has given generations of geologists puzzles and is still the subject of research. The Potsdam Potsdam Geo Research Center has recently begun a re-measurement of the Alps - it is unclear what exactly is moving in which direction, it is said.
