The „Elfer“ – home mountain of Neustift – has not only been a natural time marker for the locals since time immemorial but also shows unique geological features. It is impressive to watch how two different rock forms meet there: on the one side the rugged and bright rock towers on the Serles ridge made out of limestone, on the other side the prehistoric rock of the Stubai mountains, the so called Ötztal-Stubai-Crystalline that forms the socket of the mountain. The chalk sediments had been lifted out of the sea when the African Plate pushed against the Eurasian Plate and the Alps were formed. You recognize the limestone by its red to yellow limestone layers below the summit of Kesselspitze, a rugged and highly jointed setup and the bright rock fans out of sharp-edged boulders.
