The exact date of the site’s discovery is not known, but it was sometime between 1854 and 1866. A. Ley writes in his journal, that he made the first archaeological finds a few years prior to 1866. The abundance of prehistoric artifacts prompted the Karlsruhe Antiquities Association, around the turn of the century, to commission scientific excavations to be performed by K. Schumacher. Schumacher was the first to graphically document the sediment profiles and archaeological layers of his excavations. These documents are the earliest of their kind in the study of pile dwellings around the Bodensee. During the years of 1982-1984, 1986 and 1996, the site was systematically explored by archaeological divers of the Baden-Württemberg Department of Antiquities and Monuments.
