Tips

  • Rombea

    Cave which is used as a storage place again and again. Whether thieves, farmers, shepherds or even the farmers' cattle found shelter and protection here. Finds show that the "dwelling" dates back to the Stone Age.

    The cave seems to have had inhabitants at all times. Here researchers found remains of the cave bear, the ice fox and possibly also of the mammoth.
    Thereafter, it demonstrably served the Stone Age man as a dwelling; Skeletal remains, as well as flint tools and horn stone implements were found in her. In the wars around 1800 the farmers hid their cattle here, hence the name Kühloch.

    In this cave, about 20 meters long, people have lived since the Stone Age. In 1796, the Königstein farmers here are said to have hidden their cows from the French. The shepherds and many thieves were also harbored here.

    On a smaller summit above the Kühlochs receives my a great view into the distance. Here you pass a small shaft, which leads to the cave of the cave (this shaft is not accessible).

    The cave was used by humans during wartime and times of need, and cows were also hidden there.

    A very imposing cave, astonishingly high up on the mountain!

    It goes further in than it seems at first glance (though not particularly spectacular). A flashlight is necessary for this.
