Stone Age village / Neolithic village
The area surrounding Heldenberg was settled as far back as the Early Stone Age. This is proven by the archeological finds that also made the reconstruction of the Neolithic village possible. As well as the buildings of this time, the focus of this exhibition is on everyday life with its various prehistoric manual activities. At the weekend, children can learn how to mill corn, bake bread, make pottery, sharpen stones and shoot with a bow and arrow as part of our supervised children’s programme. NEW: The Heldenberg Game – a game of skill for young and old / for the whole family!
Circular ditches consist of one or more concentric ditches with a diameter of between 40 and 180 metres. These circular ditches, created around 5,000 B.C, surrounded palisade trenches. The construction of the impressive gateways in particular was guided by astronomical aspects and knowledge.
The Falkenhof tavern in the Stone Age village invites you to linger and recharge on the weekends.
The impressive Stone Age settlement with many finds from the Neolithic period also includes a children’s program. On the “weekends,” children can try their hand at Stone Age activities. Through pottery, stone grinding and grain grinding, the children experience how people lived and worked during that time. If you want, you can also watch bread baking and try the delicious crispy bread from the original Stone Age clay oven.
