Plan on doing a lot of walking. I did not take the cave tour. Use caution as there are some steep areas.

The tour guide was very friendly and helpful. The caves were a little chilly so wear a jacket. Great Sunday adventure. My 16 month son didn't enjoyed being carried in a carrier so I wouldn't recommend bringing children under 3.

Man made caves reveal the nature intelligence that made the material inside the cave for millions of years. This is an awesome place that is very well preserved. Open up your mind!

Nice if you in the town and you should understand German language to learn about the place. It is a historical place and free of charge

One expects to see much more, but there are only 2 levels that are open to the public. Also, the place is filled with spiders.
