Recreation of experience of first discoverers of this enormous cavern in an aerial basket (2012 version!) with suitable lights and mood music was a fittng introduction to this Cathedral of Crystal. Even though we visited this site some 10 years ago, it was still a most enjoyable experience.

Not a big fan of guided tours. But you have to here. It's quite nice, but I'm not such a cave fan. Ah well. It wasn't bad.

This is a well-presented attraction with Son et Lumiere. However there is just one large space and I have seen far better in Europe, e.g. The caves at Hans sur Lesse in Belgium.

A truly fascinating cave. It is worth taking the cable car ride (more expensive, but you drop from the roof of the cave to the floor during the music and light show. Quite spectacular. Also worth going early if you can. There were only about 11 people there when we went, but there can be up to sixty which would... More

The French invented the sound and light show and this is put to great effect in this cathedral of a cave. You have the option of descending into the cavern in a gondola (and pay extra for the privilege), or go through an access tunnel which was constructed in the 1950's, as most people do. We were given an audio... More

A very interesting experience in a lovely underground cavern. Huge and spectacular, I was quite taken aback on my first sight. They put little pots and ornaments under dripping water which gives them a glittering sheen because of the limestone deposits. Nice gift shop also.

Interesting to see the caves and it's very well presented but a real shame you can't take your own photographs. Nice areas for the kids to play as well.

An easy walk down a gentle slope led us to the top of this amazing cave. Thereafter there were steps but nothing too strenuous which was important as i had been recovering from an ankle operation. A short musical light show precluded a wander past spectacular rock formations before a short TV program on how the cave was formed. Then... More
