We visited the cave on a Sunday afternoon and while it was not crowded, it was moderately busy. The tour is in German but if you hang back, he will play an audio recording of the English translation. If you require that, just start at...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 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.
