(3.8/5 based on 95+ reviews on the web)
Teufelshoehle Pottenstein, which translates to "devil's cave," is 1,500 m (4,900 ft) long--the longest in Germany. The name comes from the unexplained disappearance of livestock in the vicinity, the remains of which were eventually found upon full exploration of the cave. Take a tour of the caves to learn about the many rock formations and even see the skeleton of a bear that met its demise by falling into the cave. Tours are available in German and English. Opening hours differ by season, so be sure to check ahead of time.

  • Interesting excursion destination for the day, which attracts the weather not for walking. For children, the leadership is perhaps a little long winded

  • Absolutely worth seeing and recommended attraction. We had extra arrived from bad Staffelstein and gladly took in buying the nearly one-hour journey! Great leadership in small groups at reasonable prices! Guests/sanatorium card present, then there is still a discount on the price of admission!

  • Beautiful cave with nice guidance and discreet lighting. The bear skeleton is great. Exciting the output in green Canyon.
