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

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

Interesting for visits with kids and adults. Probably not long, just about one hour to walk, but there are a lot to see.

Fascinating caves and geological formations. The history and the formations are well described throughout. It is Coll and a bit damp in places but that is to be expected in a cave. There is quite a bit of climbing up and down (although not difficult)....More

A bice place to see at a reasonable price. Recommended in summer when it's really hot. Caves are quite big and even if you have issues with caves or small rooms, it shouldn't be a problem

If you are looking for a rainy day attraction for your guests, why not get out of the rain by visiting the Höllgrotten in Baar? It is really just one large limestone cave, but well lit with some interesting formations.
