Valley tour Neandertal


Individual offer

Guided tours around the Ice Age game reserve and to the Neanderthal site, Neandertahler Kreuterdrop

Not far from the legendary discovery site of the Neanderthal, the Neanderthal Museum tells the history of mankind from the beginnings in the African savannas more than four million years ago to the present day. At the end of 2016, the permanent exhibition was extensively revised.

At the site where the Neanderthal man was found, in the middle of the Neandertal, we take you on a journey into the Ice Age and the exciting environmental and climatic conditions that shaped the valley and the development of mankind. Keeping rare animals from the Ice Age in a species-appropriate manner is the task of the neighboring Ice Age game reserve in the Neandertal nature reserve. Primeval bison, aurochs and tarpans live in the spacious outdoor enclosures. During guided tours through the Neanderthal with high and valley meadows, wooded slopes and the small river Düssel, we open up a view of the life of the Neanderthals as hunters and gatherers with a focus on the Ice Age flora and fauna.
