  • Great visit - guides were really friendly and even gave us some warm jackets to wear - the temperature down there is as low as 8 degrees C . Despite the fact that we couldn't speak much German , they ...  more »
  • A great excursion into the mountain. Moreover, the small museum is really worth seeing. For children, there is a large outdoor area. If the weather plays. For families suitable and certainly worth a visit. Very friendly staff and volunteer leaders.

  • This was such a fascinating place to visit. It's freezing inside, so bring a jacket. The operators were kind enough to lend us one. The whole tour is in German, although apparently they do occasionall...  more »
  • The Charlotte cave is a drip-stone cave on the Swabian Alb. The Charlotte cave is considered one of the most beautiful showcases in Germany with its drip-stone warehouse. The cave is 587 meters long with siding and is likely to be two and a half to three million years old. The opening ceremony took place on 17 September 1893. On September 23, Queen Charlotte of Württemberg visited the cave named after her.
  • Wow what an experience really glad I found this on the internet before our Holiday. Really off the beaten track and don't think they see many English there. The museum about the geology of the area was great and the lovely assistant tried her hardest to translate the German for us as she gave us a personal tour. The walk up the slope to the cave is really steep but well worth the walk. The tour was in German but it didn't seem to matter as you could get the feeling behind what was being said from looking where the torch light was (afterwards when struggling to buy postcards (my pigeon German and his pigeon English weren't compatible but we got there and I learnt the order of words when asking for something) they do have a transcript of what is said in English. The outside cafe in the car park had really friendly staff and they allowed me to try and order in German. Lovely circular walk from the site and also with your very cheap and more than reasonable entrance fee you get a 2 euro discount to a museum down the road (which we will be visiting next time we are in the area)
  • We walked what seemed a kilometer into the caves. (I heard later it was 500m) The caves are nicely lit with LED lighting. Some places which are illuminated all the time, there is moss growing. There is a snack bar with a large children's play area next to it.
  • If you like caves you should visit this one. I walked all the way in. It was very exciting! Also, you have the option to get married in here! Well, i can really recomend this! - Robert, Sweden
  • Great destination even in bad weather. The accompanying Museum is super child friendly service and offers various opportunities for all ages. And the playground and water playground is great. For children a great experience
