March 26, 2021
The second stage of the Ice Age Valley Route takes you north from Ulm. After a promising ascent to the Alb you reach the picturesque Lone Valley, where there are three more caves that are part of the UNESCO World Heritage "Caves and Ice Age Art of the Swabian Alb".On your way you will first pass the Bockstein Cave, which is about twelve meters above the valley and was inhabited by Neanderthals over 60,000 years ago. Only a few kilometers further is the Hohlenstein, where, among other things, the largest of the ivory figures, the "Lion Man", was found.Another stop is worthwhile in the Stone Age theme park "Archäopark Vogelherd". In the park you can not only visit the cave of the same name, which is also part of the UNESCO World Heritage, but also experience the life of the Ice Age people up close.After you have left the Lone Valley, a little later you will reach the Niederstotzingen train station, the destination of the tour. There is a rail connection back to the starting point in Schelklingen or Ulm.You can also drive the entire tour in the opposite direction from Niederstotzingen to Schelkingen. Ulm is a suitable starting point if you only want to cycle through one of the two valleys.
