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.

Also at 9-degree temperature, one device here sweat! More than 160cm body height you have to watch on his head! The closest place to commit has approx. 70cm wide with a height of 1, 40 m - so nothing for wheelchairs and rollators. Otherwise: Stalactites, bear skeletons, background music and great leader. The way back to the parking lot is also very interesting - let yourself be surprised! Had several children from 5-12 - who were absolutely thrilled in my group!
