  • 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.

  • Many steps lead up to the cave entrance, inside with frequent up - and from all kinds of levels are, the paths are but otherwise well designed and easy to deal with. Explains Director Klaus Krotsch objectively and understandable, the color games get a unique atmosphere mainly by blue LED. Can you like, you don't have to but. A total rewarding visit beautiful is completed through the Green rock corridors after the cave exit.

  • We had booked due to a Firmwnevent in the Schüttersmühle and here are of course also not over come in the legendary Devil's Cave! A great day, but the lead was something good sleep and not worked!
