The Neanderthal Discovery Site
The Feldhofer Grotte cave, where the remains of the Neanderthal were found in 1856, was destroyed by quarrying activities, as was the spectacular Neander Valley gorge. After new excavations in 1997 and 2000, a park was created on the site of the world-famous discovery.
Opening Times - Discovery Site and Museum: Tuesday to Sunday from 10 am to 6 pm. Closed on Mondays, public holidays vary.
Tickets for the Discovery Site and Museum: Online or at the ticket desk in the museum.
