Treasures and Museums
The famous Neanderthal Museum is situated a short distance from the place where Neanderthal man was first discovered more than 160 years ago. The visitors take a trip through the history of mankind – from our beginnings in Africa more than a million years ago to the present day. The lifelike reconstructions of our ancestors, such as the Neanderthal man “Mr. N”, the Australopithecus woman “Lucy” or the Neanderthal girl “Kina”, are especially popular. Varied productions and interactive stations as well as research toolboxes for the purpose of browsing make visiting the museum into a varied experience. Tip: a stone age playground for young and old is located directly opposite the museum.
