    Corals, shells and ammonites at 2,000 meters altitude? On this good eight-kilometer tour you will hike through a sea in the mountains - the Stone Sea with fossils up to 200 million years old. Start of the hike is at Formarinsee. From there you walk past the Alpe Formarin and the Capricorn Monument.The path leads you uphill over Alpine pastures. After a good two kilometers you have reached the unique rock formations. First you see a small coral reef, the harbinger of the Stone Sea. The next section leads you through the large clusters of fossils. Have fun discovering and viewing the ancient testimonies of bygone life - but with caution. The path takes you past marked localities through the karst area.After six kilometers you will reach the Freiburger hut. Here you can stop and enjoy the great view of the Formarinsee. Along the water you walk back to the turning loop for the bus.The blue hiking bus takes you from the post office in Lech regularly up to the starting point of the hike and then back again.
