The Vogelherd cave
One of the world's most important archaeological sites of the Stone Age.
The cave was strategically located on a hill of 20 meters above the Lone and offered a perfect 180-degree view over the valley which makes a small kink. For 100,000 years the cave with its three exits gave to our ancestors shelter and refuge. From this dry and safe position, they could watch animals or dangers from great distance, go hunting and follow their prey in moving formations. The residents left behind layer after layer unique treasures to later generations and made the Vogelherd Cave one of the most remarkable archaeological sites of human prehistory.
