Traces of the Ice Ages on the Dresdner Heller

Following the sandy paths in northern Dresden on "Heller" and in "Dresdner Heide" we learn more about the development of these unique landscape. During the Ice Age 300,000 years ago, there were high glaciers piling up north of Dresden and depositing alluvial sand layers in the area. We can still find traces of the last major climate change during the Ice Age today, like sand dunes and rocks from Scandinavia transported by the glaciers. We discover some rare and protected plant and animal species which are protected.
