A hole in a wall at a Swiss lake in the Swiss Alps is one of the world’s best-preserved holes.
The rock is called Hollow Wood, and its origins are a mystery, but its origins date back hundreds of thousands of years.
According to the National Museum of Switzerland, the hole was carved by a hunter about 300 years ago.
He used a rock hammer to dig a hole and he was rewarded with a stone, which he later used to build a wooden house.
“The holes are very different to the modern ones in that they are made of stone and are not made of wood,” the museum says.
“These holes are probably much more beautiful than modern holes, and we have many examples in our collections.”
The hole is on the lake Neslebaut, which sits at the foot of the Alps.
The area is known as a natural gem, and is home to several species of fish and birds, including a rare blue-footed pike.
In the 1930s, a Swiss army base was constructed there.
In 2012, the lake was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site, and the lake is a popular attraction for the locals.
In 2007, the museum decided to take a look around and make a new hole, but instead of using stone, they used a piece of wood that they could carve.
“This was the only hole we found, but it was not as beautiful as the hole we had already found, because it was very difficult to carve,” museum director Jan-Oliver Büttner told local media.
“We did not think it would be possible to carve it, so we decided to use wood instead,” he added.
“It took about six weeks and four hours of cutting.
We were so amazed by how hard it was to do this, but we managed it.”
When Büettner and his team found the hole, they were shocked to find a very fine, dark-green stone inside.
“I could not believe my eyes, because I had never seen anything like it before,” he said.
“As soon as I saw the hole in my mind, I thought ‘what could be this?'”
The hole was about the size of a golf ball, and was made of a soft wood called maple.
“Now, this hole was very special to us because it has a special value,” he continued.
“Because the hole has been carved by an expert, it has its own history, which is quite remarkable.”
Since it has been used, the stones in this hole have also changed in their composition, colour, texture and texture.
“It is the first known example of a hole in this nature, and it has since become a popular tourist attraction.”
The museum says the hole is also home to rare species of fishes and birds.””
I was fascinated by the woods, and I still am today.”
The museum says the hole is also home to rare species of fishes and birds.
“All kinds of birds and fish live there, including rare species such as the blue-legged pike and the northern pike,” the team wrote in a press release.
“It is a beautiful place for birds to nest.”
The Hole in the Wall is open daily from 10am to 6pm.
