Have made multiple tours in this cave and it's still amazes me everytime. It's a German tour but they play English after the tour guide speaks. Usually you're walking off to the next area of interest before it's done. There's a lot of stairs with...More

Even if the illuminations could have been more tasteful the cave (the joined up caves) is truly fascinating with interesting formations. The guided tour was on the short side but informative. Cheap entry Wonderful surroundings The cake at the cafe was tasty and priceworthy

The drive was very scenic with lots of mountain road twist-and-turns and a beautiful small river alongside. The cave is remarkable, and their guide/announcements are bi-lingual (Deutsche and English). A must go place if you are traveling Nuremberg-Bamberg area, and also if you are driving...More

The cave is beautiful for sure, but it isn't really that much of a "WOW"-experience. The best thing about this cave is the nature around it. The guide we had only spoke German, and I don't think they have an English guide.

Well, it's a cave. It's the largest drip stone cave in the area. The tour is in German, but the guide will be happy to play a taped explanation in English if you ask for it. This cave is very accessible from the parking lot...More
