The Baar Caves are definitely worth a visit, especially if it is a rainy day. It takes about 20 minutes to meander through the caves and there are interesting stories as well for children. If it is a nice day, it is nice to park...More

The caves themselves are absolutely stunning, with fascinating factoids scattered throughout. The caves are beautifully lit, with some parts using colour but others just set to highlight special features. Incidentally, being so warm lately, the constant temperature of 10C was an absolutely delight, and the...More

Charming place. I was lucky to be there with no other visitors and i got to experience the cave all to myself. Feel like i was in a fairy land. The cave was not overly decorated like some other caves i have been, which add...More

This attraction is certainly off the beaten path. There is no bus service so you'll need a bike or car for the last mile or so on a road through the forest. To get to the cave after you purchase your ticket you take a...More

Beautiful place. Don't take the car. It is really worth to do the walk from the bus 3 stop Paradise and start walking for about 45min and enjoy the beautiful path through the Forrest and river. The caves are of course beautiful!

Very nice to have trip with family with young kids. They are excited after walking in the caves. Also they spent a lot of energy, while reaching the entrance- about 15-20 min climbing. So returning back to home, a lot of new knowledge and they...More

The Hollgrotten is a natural cave system which is very well prepared and a great place to visit in summer time when temperatures are above 35 degrees Celsius. It is nice and cool and the walk through the cave is easy and full of surprises....More

The place turned out to be much better than I expected. It was around 45 minutes of walking through the caves, admiring various formations made by water during thousands of years. Everything is well prepared, and the lights add a bit of charm. I advise...More

The photos don't quite do this place justice. It is immense, particularly in the central caverns were Europe's largest underground river flows. The light show in the final immense cavern is incredible, and alone worth the admission. It is a bit of a drive out,...More
