1. Gifhorner Findling

Show sight on map

The Gifhorn boulder is a boulder made of potash feldspar granite, which was discovered on 8 August 2014 by an excavator operator during earthworks on a property in Lüneburger Straße in Gifhorn near the Gifhorn mill "Lady Devorgilla". It was located in a three-meter-deep excavation pit that had been excavated for the construction of a residential building. According to a first measurement, the block, which is about 3.5 × 2.5 × 2.0 metres in size and weighs 13 tonnes, was apparently transported from southern Sweden through the inland ice to the site during one of the last glacial periods of the Pleistocene and deposited there within a moraine. It is said to be the largest boulder discovered so far in the district of Gifhorn. Another large and for other reasons relatively well-known specimen in the district is the Bickelstein.

The sponsor-financed institution built the Bell Palace from 1996 as an extensive building complex in the old Russian architectural style. Due to a long construction period and lack of funds, it was not put into operation until 2013. The initiator of the institute was Horst Wrobel, the founder and long-standing director of the neighbouring Gifhorn Mill Museum.
