It's a nice trip to see something new and different. It's a 30 min drive from Zurich and the last part of the track is in the forest. I wouldn't recommend it for old people if they are not fit and sporty. Once you buy the ticket, you have to walk a 5 min slope which is not easy at... More

Höllengrotten is the name given to the limestone caves near Baar. The tour of its interior is approximately one and a half kilometres long and on it you can observe lovely stalactite and stalagmite formations. A visit to the cave complex in wild, romantic Lorzentobel is well worthwhile.

Take a wonderful walk along the river from Baar to the Hollgrotten. At the end is a restaurant, the house is very old and simple but the food is great. Kids can run around, dogs are welcome. Visit the underground caves as well and make it a whole days outing

When visiting the caves, I recommend using the app that can be downloaded prior to the visit or rent a pair of head sets on site. Especially kids will enjoy the stories and the way the interactive experience is set-up. There are also side boards in each cave that are very informative. Not recommended if you don't like confined spaces,... More

We go there regularly, sometimes for dinner, sometimes for lunch, or sometimes just for a drink while walking our dogs. The place feels very homey. Mostly locals go there during the week and tourists on Weekends, after a visit to the caves nearby. They have a self service kiosk which gets very busy during the summer weekends.They also have two... More

Difficult to find since signage is non-existent, but here are the GPS coordinates: N 47 11'14.3" E 008 33'26.8" Short and interesting caverns. Wear shoes that give you some grip.

This is an attraction best reached by car. There is no bus or train route near by. Some people arrived by bike. It is a great excursion on our way from Lucerne to Zurich for the day. Such a unique cavern/cave. Never seen anything like it. It is self guided, so you can take your time and go your own... More

When I got to the top of the hill, I wasn't sure what to expect, when the door was shut I was feeling a bit claustrophobic but there was a lot of us, Hollgrotten was amazing

We liked the caves a lot. Adventurous for kids, well prepared and lighted and connected to an area of Kanton Zug where you can do so much more including a great for dinner/ lunch nearby.

All what you expect from a cave. High variety of beautiful formations and scenery. Absolutely worth the trip if you are staying in the Lucerne or Zurich area. Thee is a typical Kiosk that sells the tickets, but also snacks and drinks. The Cave consists out of 2 levels with stairs to climb. After exiting a small walk back down... More
