#1 of 7 in Things to do in Pottenstein
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.

    The 45 minute guided tour of the cave is Supersehenswert, but not for people with weak lungs. 105 (up) has approximately 300 steps, the highest stairs. 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!

    The Devil's Pottenstein cave is an impressive stalactite cave. You is situated in the beautiful village of Pottenstein and has a large car park. The entrance fee is € 3 for adults €5 and for children. The tour including guided tour takes about 45 minutes. You get something explained during a guided tour inside the cave at 3 locations. On certain days, concerts and smaller events take place at the entrance of the cave. The last guided tour starts in the summer at 17:30. We are happy to again here here :) Tip: You can see it all without leadership and experience
