  • Andreas Platzl

    These sandstone caves below the Regenstein Fortress are well hidden and are therefore among the insider tips for the Harz hike. The dark caves invite children to play hide and seek.

    In the small cave ledge there is even a wooden bench with a table and invites you to take a break.
    The small cave is on the steep climb to the Regensteinburg in / from the parking lot.
    If you step back from the cave on the way, you have a nice view up to the castle!

    There are many sandstone caves in the area. This is just one of them - but by far not the most popular or interesting ...

    Great and recommended landscape. Short trip possible. 2.5 hours and 6km later, many highlights of this region admired. Great.

    Looking from the Regenstein towards Halberstadt, a white spot stands out in the middle of the pine forest. Here in the "Heers", in a forest clearing the size of a soccer field, there are mighty sandstone cliffs in which caves have partially formed. The Dedingstein is located in the middle of the area, which is known in Blankenburg as "sandhutsche".

    The sandstone caves below the rainstone are well hidden and are therefore among the insider tips in the Harz Mountains. Friends of the Harz hiking pin have chosen this place as the "Most Beautiful Stamp Site of the Year 2009".

    The originality and the power of nature become clear here. In ancient times, the Germanic tribes are said to have used this place as a meeting place. From the Middle Ages to the end of the 19th century, pure white parlor sand was extracted here. At first glance, the sandstone cliffs also resemble the chalk cliffs on Rügen.

    Somewhat hidden in the forest, below the fortress. Nice little cave with a rest area in front of it.

    From the ruins on the way to the sandstone caves, you pass this cave on the side of the path.

    They are right on the hiking trail. It is very worthwhile to have a look. It sometimes goes quite deep in and down.
