To the west of Cementa’s northern quarry is a viewing point with a geological exhibition.

There are large stone blocks with various fossils exposed, including orthoceras (nautiloids) and stromatolites (petrified bacterial colonies). There are also fine views over the town of Skövde from here.

Limestone is still quarried today in the north quarry in order to make cement. This quarry is of special interest because of the large numbers of fossils that can be found here. Guided tours around the area are organised by Cementa. During these tours you can chip out your own fossils of creatures such as orthoceras, which lived 400 million years ago. Crevices in the rock now provide nesting sites for stock doves.

The easiest access to the viewing point is from Södra Bergvägen.
