About us


Growing up in the Southwestern part of Germany and living in old town Tuebingen, my fascination with geology and paleontology became my profession. My early passion was focussed on Holzmaden fossils nearby. These are not only scientifically unique, why the term "Lagerstaette" was initially applied by Prof. Seilacher, Tuebingen, to this fossil site (and for Bundenbach), also in terms of aesthetics these fossils are appealing and sought after by collectors worldwide.

About Holzmaden


The Posidonia shale from the area around Holzmaden is famous for his fossils. One of the first fossil collectors at all was Duke Carl Eugen of Württemberg so documented in 1749.  When Bernhard Hauff, the legendary preparator, uncovered extremely fine, coal-black remnants while preparing an ichthyosaur in 1892, it was the first time that fossil remnants of soft tissue were detected. Since then, the march of fossils from Holzmaden into the museums worldwide started.  Even if the "golden" times of manual mining passed and only a few findings are made once in a while, this classic fossil site has lost nothing of its attractiveness. Nowhere else in the world are vertebrates found in this quality and frequency. The sea lilies, including the largest fossil colonies in the world, are unique, too.
