    Magnificent views of the surrounding area from Hohle Fels, nice seating for a rest with a view of the Happurg reservoir. Very popular place and very busy in summer. Not recommended on weekends.

    Be sure not only to look at the caves, but to climb up and enjoy the view. Many stones are ideal for a rest with a fantastic view. Absolute highlight! But don't go too far!

    The Houbirg is a mountain near Happurg in Middle Franconia with a lost Celtic oppidum of the same name. Remains of the walls, some ten meters high, have been preserved, four and a half kilometers in length enclosing an area of almost one square kilometer. In addition, a prehistoric site, a castle stable and a tunnel complex built as part of the U relocation testify to the history of the elevation.

    The word Houbirg is divided into two words: "Birg" and "Hou". Birg comes from the word "bergen", which means something like to withdraw on the mountain for defense and Hou is related to the word "Hag", which means thorny bushes, fencing and fortified place.

    The Houbirg is one of the largest high-altitude Celtic settlements in southern Germany, which was enclosed by a ring wall approximately four and a half kilometers long (compare Nuremberg city wall: four kilometers).

    The first evidence of settlement dates back to around 1600 BC. BC back. It is believed that the plant was built in two main phases of settlement, in the urn field period (approx. 900 - 800 BC) and in the early Celtic period (approx. 500 BC), it was finally expanded by the Celtic Laten culture .

    From Pommelsbrunn you can start from the S-Bahn station. Just go in the direction of the pub and follow the red signs (1000hmtr ...). I ran counterclockwise and found this variant good. There are many vertical meters to practice and great views. The round is the southern part of the 1000-Höhenmeterweges and the nicer part. The marks are very good. However, I did not find a rest stop. But Pommelsbrunn is nearby and the Naturfreundehaus there is open on weekends (ask in low season!)

    At the top of the cave there is a tiny slip outside that thrills 6-year-olds as an adventure.
