Secrets written in stone

The Karavanke Geopark represents an exceptional geological and regional heritage at the border area between Austria and Slovenia. It was founded in 2013 within the global geopark network under the patronage of UNESCO. The Karavanke Geopark is distinguished by its location that crosses borders and the mutually advantageous diversity of the two cultures. The geological line between the Eurasian and the African plate runs here, so visitors can literally stand with one foot in Africa and the other in Europe.

The Geopark Interpretation Centre in Bad Eisenkappel offers an excellent insight into the diversity of the Geopark Karavanke.
