Mettmann

Mettmann – a town about 25 minutes away from the carnival stronghold of Düsseldorf, known throughout the world for its Neanderthal, where the remains of a human being from the Stone Age were discovered in the 19th century. The town can be traced back to a settlement founded around 1100 AD and today has approximately 40,000 inhabitants.

From the historic city center, visitors quickly reach the Neanderthal Museum, which impressively documents the fate of the Neanderthals and the evolution of mankind. The outdoor evolution path is worth a visit, as is the exhibit of the historic Goldberg Mill.
