Stone Age caves (Steinzeithöhlen)
At the foot of the Falkenlay rock there are smaller stone age caves. Their settllement between 4,000 and 2,000 BC by Stone Age hunters was proven by corresponding finds. The caves can be reached via the "Geo-Route Bad Bertrich" hiking trail.
The Falkenlay is the oldest cinder cone in this volcanic system. In the case of slag eruptions, lava rocks of irregular shape and size, the slag, are ejected from the volcano, which accumulate around the chimney and form a characteristic steep and conical mountain. The approximately 50 m high crater wall can still be seen today. Here you can find the caves populated in the Stone Age.
