  • The Saalfeld fairy grottoes are not wrongly in the Guinness Book of world records. As colorful caves, they are one of the highlights for the whole family and always worth a visit! On rainy days, the caves are the perfect destination, on hot summer days, they offer a cool shelter instead. Tip for families: after a visit to the fairy grottoes in the neighboring fairy Weltchen!

  • We spontaneously went in the early afternoon and found a free parking. Just 10 minutes later we could do with a public tour. The Group was totally mixed by very young to very old. This was the tour leader (originally from Berlin), but everything well under control. We found very good his statements (and particularly the sayings). The "investiture" together with the stocking CAP is unusual but serves determines the protection... Through a combination ticket, we were still short in the Museum after the caves and have allowed themselves then in the Café still a nice coffee break us. The trip had succeeded in all around for us.

  • The Saalfeld fairy grottoes are advertised from far away. Accordingly the expectations at each step in the immense rose. Unfortunately, our expectations were not met. Pretty unspectacular, plumpe, down gerasselte information. It should be noted we were for a wedding there. Overall, the organizational process somewhat ruined the festive mood. (Issuance of jacket, slippery way for festive women shoes with heels more than 2 cm) The "light" was also unkind. The wedding itself us seemed like a coffee journey, a pure self representation of the fairy grottoes on the part of the Registrar and the staff. How grateful and delighted to be had. A different opinion to have seemed to be not appreciated. It seemed as if it were a tour of the school and I would have to write exam. Overall totally disappointing, the bride and groom, the it should actually go in the first place, was secondary. No arrival of 7 hours worth. Maybe something for residents who spend the day on the sofa just sitting?

  • To be clear this isn't a natural goegeous cave like we have in the US. It is an artificial mine with about 4 grotto small cavern rooms that have a few rusty brown formations. They have constructed artificial ponds in these rooms to enhance their look with the reflection. The grotto is really disappointing if you have ever seen a good cave. Apparently it used to be colorful, sparkly, and blue but the tour lights have caused bacteria to grow and change the colors covering everything with a rusty color in recent years. The tour is in German with listening devices for other languages. About 4 sections of 2 min of audio, but the guide will talk for over 10 mins at some stops leaving you bored, confused, and left out. The group sizes of 20 are so large you cant get up to see the rooms while the guide is talking either. Small children will have trouble anywhere but up front. Plus is they provide ponchos for warmth and to stay clean. Not really needed though. The whole walk through is paved and very accessible, but kind of removes the authentic feeling. The outdoors area is very well done for young children to play. Lots for them to run and play through. The museum is a waste for any that can't read German. It is tailored towards children, about 15-20 mins of material. You won't be. Is sing anything by skipping it. The bratwurst are cheap and yummy.
  • Really nice place! The people there are friendly and polite. Beautiful scene.
  • it is not something NG
  • Hat was
  • Cave since about a hundred years we were at Easter with a privately organized tour group in the Saalfeld fairy caves. We have traveled me about 50 people, which has been professionally managed for the local staff. The guide was very informative without too many concepts, which of course is important for the children. The caves have impressed us with their mystical play of light and colors. Then lunch was tasty and was served in a very short time. Thank you to the entire team on the spot.
