    Before there was the Danube and the Rhine, the Lone was the only outlet in the whole area and a torrent that created this valley. When the first people came here 40,000 years ago, the Danube and Rhine already existed and the Lone had shrunk to a small river. Herds of animals moved down the valley to the plateaus when there were too many mosquitoes by the water in the short, hot summers. The hunters just had to stand on the edge at the right moment and throw their spear. Today the Lone is a barely visible trickle in the still beautiful valley.

    Whether the Lone is currently carrying water or not, the valley itself is a wonderful natural experience.
