Located a bit outside on Eichstätt on a small hill overseeing the little town with the fortress is this dig site. It demands a small fee (and an additional fee if you are to rent hammer and chisel) but is easily accessible and has a lot of small fossilized starfish, lesser ammonites and rarely some over small remains from the 100 - 190 mio years period. For the larger specimen, it is recommended to go the other dig site "Mühlheim". However here, if you spend one or two hours, it is safe to say that you can find some of the little starfish. However listen to the local people at the cashier. We saw some people messing around with the wrong pieces and not finding anything.
A nuisance are, as unfortunately must be said is quite common know, very badly behaved children. We had one small boy running riots with his hammer and breaking my daughters nice finds. Shame on the parents who even couldn't understand why we complaint about their lack of education! So protect your findings well and stay close by them.
