Guttannen (BE)
Excursion

With the publication of sheet 174 Guttannen of the Geological Atlas of Switzerland 1:25 000 in summer 2022, we will disclose the secrets of the rocks that typify an important region for the geological exploration of the Aar Massif. Granites, gneisses, schists, amphibolites and serpentinites transport us back in time over 300 to 450 million years. We will also observe recent processes and their impacts.

In addition to the spectacular alpine landscape, we will discover installations for energy production that shape the landscape and that are today a major subject of public discussion.
