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. Make Teufelshoehle Pottenstein a part of your Pottenstein vacation plans using our Pottenstein vacation maker app.
