Library of the Gesellschaft für Geschiebekunde


In the “Geomatikum” of the University of Hamburg, Bundesstraße 55, is the small but not to be underestimated library of our society. Although it has more the character of a presence library, books and writings can also be borrowed, if the age of the objects still allows it. The range of topics extends from general geology and local history to Quaternary geology and special bed load research.

Opening hours:

By appointment.

Objects can only be issued against entry in the borrowing file.
