On the way to sites of stone quarrying, glass and iron smelting and prehistory. The Mels Geoweg leads through the village center of Mels as well as through relaxing forest sections.

On the Mels Geoweg the geological history of the vacation region Heidiland is presented with the help of more than 30 typical rock blocks as well as the impressive panorama with views of the Gonzen or the Churfirsten. The topics always relate to the carefully selected panel locations: mining, fortress construction, millstone and well production, iron smelting, glass production, grain mills, prehistory, earth history, mountain construction and habitat.
