    The fairytale Elven Grotto - a geological natural monument and biotope with a small waterfall and a small sea of ferns. Of course you can linger here on the bench and let the natural spectacle take its toll. In hot summer, the grotto is an oasis of refreshment before climbing over a rock massif to the singing meadow.

    A highlight that you should treat yourself to, the way to the 2nd floor requires surefootedness.

    Fantastic path away from the Drachenschlucht! A side trip, which is worthwhile.

    Coming from the singing meadow, you have no idea what to expect. With every step there is more to discover and it is difficult to get out of your amazement because you simply do not expect it

    The Elven Grotto is a rock about 11 meters high with caves. The steep wall belongs to a series of geological natural monuments

    There is a very dangerous geocache here. And you can pause well here.
