    Before the Danube and the Rhine existed, the Lone was the only outflow in the area and a raging stream that created this valley. When the first humans came here 40,000 years ago, the Danube and Rhine were already there and the lone had shrunk to a little liquid. Animal herds moved down the valley to the plateaus when there were too many mosquitoes in the short hot summers on the water. The hunters only had to stand on the edge at the right moment and throw their spears. Today, the Lone is a barely visible trickle.

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