The cave discovered in 1996 in the Laubenstein area (Chiemgau / Bavarian Alps) contained mainly rests of Ursus spelaeus and Ursus arctos. This cave is the first alpine cave bear bearing cave in Germany. A test pit was dug and numerous special analyses, for example collagen isotopy and absolute datations, were done on the bones. The collagen isotopy confirms the results of other research groups. The datations place the cave bear occupation of the cave in the Hengelo-Denekamp Interstadial complex (OIS 3).
