My daughter and I really enjoyed the English speaking guide. We were so interested in the history of the caves and the guide was very informative. My daughter carried one of the lanterns for a while and I was asked to open the vault where the paintings were stored during world war II. I would highly recommend.

We bought a combination ticket for the Fort & Northern caves. Our tour guide was Ed. It was very interesting to have the tour with him, as he not only explains what is to be seen, but adds with his knowledge of history and humor.

Tour is taken from same place as the tours for the fort. Took an English speaking tour which lasted about an hour. A long and varied past, which started with the mining of stone. I got the impression that there's so much to see that the tour guides vary each tour to suit. Not the sanitised over-protective environment of similar... More

We did a combined (guide) tour though the fort and the (artificial) caves. Although the sights aren't that spectacular, it's still fun and interesting. The guide was really enthusiastic and had a lot of knowledge, which made the tours worth while. We bought a combined ticket for both the fort and the Northern Caves. 10 euros per person. Pretty good... More

we went on a saturday with friends to the caves. reached a bit late and thus could not go to the fort. The tunnels are nice and old. Have a good history to it. I think the best part is the tour guide. She was very interesting and made it a lot of fun. One of my friends had gone... More

I was looking forward to the caves and the history told about them. But not all the information other TAs noted was provided on my tour. No information about the importance of the caves during WWII. Also was looking forward to being in the caves in complete darkness but that didn't happen. I would recommend to go because the extent... More

Made a last minute decision to check out the St. Pietersberg Caves. I visited the North Caves. The guide was very knowledgeable about the caves. He even took us on a slight detour into the vault where paintings were kept during WWII (or maybe every tour does that?). I was a little nervous about going into the caves because I... More

Very different and looks like natural caves. 10 degree and warm even at winter. About 50k people took refuge in this cave during world war.

Old carvings and paintings made over the last 200 years. Nice and warm in the winter. I have been in the cave several times and planning to visit again with my grandchildren

Spent a great hour on our tour of these "caves"..... Our guide Kitty was excellent, definitely worth booking the English speaking tour as it would have been pointless otherwise. A very interesting tour, thanks! 😀
