The Geiβenklösterle-cave in the Achtal-valley near Blaubeuren on the Swabian Alb delivered a stratigraphical sequence between 50, 000 and 10, 000 bp. This paper concentrates on the faunal remains of the Gravettian horizons. The seasonality of cave bear and human hunting activities was investigated. Bath species used the cave site probably during winter and spring, the summer season could be excluded.
