Cave Nature / Park
Venture beneath the earth to see one of the world’s largest subterranean lakes at Caves of Drach. The four caves sit 25 m (82 ft) underground and stretch 2.4 km (1.5 mi). Marvel at the impressive stalactite and stalagmite formations that adorn the cave floors and ceilings. Take a guided tour through the caves, which includes a boat ride across Martel Lake and ends with a four-piece live classical concert. The paths can be quite steep and slippery, so be sure to wear good walking shoes.

  • We got lucky and arrived during a calm afternoon with few other tourist and enjoyed the trip through a well prepared and well lit cave (actually, several caves connected by a common sink hole). Expect your tour to start on the hour (ours was at 14:00. I think tour buses arrive in the morning). Check their web site for tour timings. Good cafeteria on site with food, coffee, ice cream, beer, ....
  • The caves are very cool to see and they make it easy to navigate with clear paths and lighting. This makes it easy to bring children along. Main problem was the execution which was frustrating at times. They let a few hundred people in every hour so it is crowded and impossible to pinpoint the formations they note on the map as there are no signs and no guide. I believe there was a guide at the front who spoke a few short sentences but only the first few people could hear, the others were more like security ensuring everything moves along. Near the end you have to wait for everyone to get into a concert hall for some classical music, it takes a while to get everyone in and of course even though you're told not to take pictures everyone does and then you have to rush to the front in order to take the short boat ride for which there is no real line. The concern overall was nice though and the caves are worth seeing but I feel they could improve the experience.
  • The cave is beautiful however I do not think it worth 17 euro. We arrived at the last tour at 17:00 so we could not see the blue line of the tour. Therefore our tour was only the red line and took only 30 minutes including the music show they have at the bottom of the cave. There was no guide. The recorded audio was looping in multiple languages so it was impossible to follow while moving as a group.
  • We came here with our kids twice and they loved it. The cave is in a decent shape given the mass tourism and it's still impressive. The music show and the few meters on the small boat are a great attraction, especially for your kids. The organization is perfect, so everything is easy with little children.
  • Beautiful caves, stunningly lit and the concert on the lake was amazing. 2 violins, cello and harpsichord all on a small rowboat playing 3 separate pieces of music beautifully. Afterwards you can cross the lake by boat or walk across a foot bridge. There is a little snack bar for hot sandwiches or a pizza and truly delicious coffee.
