  • We did the Sophienhohle at night cave tour and felt pretty ripped off. It's a very small cave, and you should plan to spend about 20 minutes, at max about 30 walking around inside.  more »

  • A interesting cave. You can get a lot of information about the past. There are a lot of stalactites in the cave. One is called "the millionaire" and should be a lot of hundred thousands of years old. A (complete!) skeleton from a cave - bear is also displayed
  • Very nice... just a pity that the tour is olny in German...
  • Rather big and interesting cave.
  • Little bit of a climb up from the road to the cave entrance. Proceed through a number of caverns with some pretty spectacular rock formations. Quite cold inside so be prepared
  • Sophienhöhle is an interesting grotto, which is worth seeing nearby. The entrance of course with a guide, which will explain in detail the emergence, discovery and the entire history of the grotto. Admission is only 5 euros. If you are planning to visit Burg Rabenstein, you can buy a combined ticket for 9 euros, thanks to which we will see Sophienhöhle and Burg Rabenstein. Recommend!
