Munich Mineral Days

More than one year since BUGA, flowers will once again adorn the halls of the MOC in Riem. But during the 43rd annual Mineralientage (Mineral Days), however, the flowers will be millions of years old. Over 850 exhibitors from every continent will present fossils of flora and fauna as well as newly fashioned jewelry and precious stones. Expert collectors and novices alike will be able to contextualize the pieces through special lectures on gemology and the lapidary arts. The fair will be open Friday and Saturday, 9 am to 7 pm; and Sunday, 9 am to 6 pm. Tickets will cost € 11 (€ 6 after 3 pm.) Tickets for children 10-16 will cost € 5, and children under 10 will enter free-of-charge.
