Deutsch: Das Neandertal (oder Neanderthal) ist ein ca. 1 km langer Talabschnitt der Düssel im Gebiet der Städte Erkrath und Mettmann im nordrhein-westfälischen Kreis Mettmann. Das Gebiet wurde 1856 durch den Fossilienfund Neandertal 1 bekannt.
English: The Neandertal (or Neanderthal, sometimes called "Neander Valley" in English) is a ca. 1 km long valley section of the river Düssel in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia. It lies within the limits of the towns of Erkrath and Mettmann, a few kilometers east of Düsseldorf. In 1856 the area became famous for the discovery of the Neanderthal 1 fossil.
Note: There is some confusion regarding the correct spelling. Despite that since 1901 the German word "Tal" (valley) is spelled without "h", the old form Neanderthal is also frequently used as a proper noun/name, especially relating to the fossil site and for corresponding touristic infrastructure. As an ordinary placename, it is usually spelled without "h", e.g. in official names of streets, schools, protected areas…, also in geographical or other non-paleontological publications, etc. >> Both spellings are ok.
