  • This cave is a little gem hidden inside a very nice landscape. And the 50 minutes tour is anything but boring. Highly recommended!  more »
  • We liked the Story and the french fries ☺️
  • A must see when visiting the Harz region. Guided tours available in German and English. This cave can be visited with small children, it is accessible with pushchairs. The guide was very good. Temperature inside the cave is constantly at 7°C, perfect on both cold and hot days.
