Huntercamp “Hohler Stein”

„Prehistoric hunters and herdsmen camped on this spot between the 8th and 4th century B.C. The large overhanging boulder forms a well-protected site that was frequently visited by prehistoric people during summer. They built fire pits, processed their kills and produced tools from wood, bone and antlers. Primarily, they worked on making knives, arrowheads, scrappers and drill bits from high quality flintstone, a valuable trading material that came from the northern region around Lake Garda (Italy).

The site of discovery of the iceman is only about 12 km form here, and it is not unlikely that he passed by these rocks on his last journey. The prehistoric camp was reconstructed according to the excavation report.“
