How was the country actually formed? Anyone who travels through Germany steps on rocks as old as time itself. The ground on which we hike was partly formed by primeval seas, glaciers and volcanoes—and unfolded by colliding continental plates. This Collection is the second part of the hiking series ‘Paths of Knowledge’ by the magazine, ZEIT Wissen.

Hiking from volcano to volcano, we pass through the Eifel, walk up to the watery mouth of North Friesland and conquering a peak in the Chiemgau Alps. The hikes, which were designed with the help of scientists, lead you through Germany’s history. Find out more about these hikes in the ZEIT Wissen editions between June and October 2017.

Here an area from Belgium to the Siegerland formed a geological community of fate: the Rhenish Slate Mountains. During the Devonian, 380 million years ago today, it was …

    In the second stage, it's 22 kilometers from Daun to Manderscheid, but even further into the past: how did the stuff we're running around come from?

It is …

    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 …
