  • Liked it! Never been in a cave with stalactites and stalagmites. Interesting place to visit is worthwhile. All unusual limestone figurines are highlighted in different colors. In the cave is quite damp. Dress warmer. Lots of steep stairs up and down, there is a rather vzmetnu places. Entrance 5 € for adults, there is a description in German, English, Russian, French.

  • This always well-attended dripstone cave is known beyond the borders of Franconia. We enjoy also the freshly smoked trout after a visit to the cave next to the parking lot.

  • Part of the visit in Pottenstein. The check is recommended after the rush, when much is going on there is ever waiting times. Call and simply different schedule. If you are already in place and have to wait, you can pass but also the time in the beautiful surroundings, also with Kindern.Parkplatz is large enough, but the footpath of Pottenstein is recommended.
