    Hohler Fels (Happurg) is the name of a karst cave near Happurg on the Franconian Alb. In addition to the cave, the neighboring rock face also bears this name. The cave, open to the south, is 546 meters high, below the former Celtic defense system called Houbirg (617 meters).

    The 16-meter-long and six-meter-high cave on the southern crest of the summit was registered as a monument to the Bavarian List of Monuments for finds from the Stone Age and the Urnfield Period. In front of the cave is a natural bridge with two openings.

    The hollow rock is one of the "must see" highlights in the Nuremberg region. In every season, the rock with its many caves, rock formations and viewpoints its charm, even in the evening. This highlight is a bit too far north and not directly on the Hollow Rock.

    This spacious cave of about 20 m in length, 5 m in height and up to 10 m wide lies in the hollow rock above Happurg. It forms one of the foothills of the Jurassic plateau to the west, which drops relatively steeply here to Hersbrucker bay.

    Great view over Happurg and the Happurger reservoir. There are several lookout points, each offset by a few feet to erkraxeln. Every job is worth it! Attention with children: the viewing rocks are not secured and it goes down steeply.
