Bärenfalle (1511/169) is a karst cave, located in the western part of the Tennengebirge (Salzburg, Austria) 2100 m above sea level. In the deepest part of the cave faunal remains of the Late Pleistocene, mostly bones of cave bears (Ursus spelaeus eremus, ~ 50,000 calBP), were found. These extinct animals hibernated in this cave and many of them died during the winter months giving rise to the accumulation of abundant bones and teeth in the cave sediment.
In 2015 and 2016 an interdisciplinary team led by Sebastian Krutter, Christine Frischauf and Gernot Rabeder (Institute of Palaeontology, University of Vienna) conducted palaeontological excavations which revealed the potential of these cave sediments for reconstructing the fauna and flora of the Late Pleistocene.
