    The Bilstein Cave is a cave system in the Arnsberger Wald Nature Park in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. This is visited annually by 30,000 to 100,000 people. In addition to the show cave, there are other cave parts, which are partially associated with the show cave. The cave has a number of interesting formations of stalactite, some of which are located directly on the trail.

    The cave is open daily from April to October from 9:00 to 16:30 and from November to March from 10:00 to 15:30. Guided tours are offered every 45 minutes, which takes around 30 minutes. Adults pay € 4.50 (in the group: € 4.00), for children € 2.50 (in the group: € 2.00).

    On an area of ​​35 hectares, the animals can be experienced in their natural environment.
    Generously designed enclosures provide an optimal view. On informative boards one learns more about the inhabitants of Wildpark Warstein. For about a decade, this lodge has had a lynx enclosure that has also become an attraction over the city.
    Admission to the year-round open game park is free. Dogs can be carried on a leash. Parking fees are not charged.
    In the middle of the game park lies the Bilsteinhöhle. During the 30-minute guided tour at a constant temperature of 8 ° C you will learn all about the millennia-old stalactite formations and the formation of stalagmites and stalactites. Adventure tours are available on request.

    The game reserve is right on the Bilsteinhöhle, the entrance is free, as well as the parking. Only for the stalactite cave you have to pay admission. In the game enclosure, children can observe animals that are housed in spacious enclosures. Wild food is also being sold to keep the zoo free. The circuits are good to go.
    There is also a nice children's playground on the premises. A real family tip
