    The Kluterthöhle was created by leaching from a falling to the north, about 12.5 m thick layer of reef limestone, which was formed about 370 million years ago in the sea in the Devonian. Due to its climate, it is also used as a resort for asthmatics. The cave has a constant temperature of 10 ° C.

    During the Second World War, the Klutert cave served the Ennepetalern as a bunker to protect against air raids.

    The cave is used as a spa and show cave. In addition to conventional tours, it offers adventure tours that take visitors through narrow passages in an extreme tour with flashlights and sturdy shoes. The annual number of visitors in recent years is an average of 44,000 people.

    At the entrance we find a sign with the following inscription (13.03.2019):
    "The Kluterthöhlensystem is a unique natural phenomenon, which is of outstanding scientific and natural historical reasons and because of their rarity, nature and beauty of outstanding importance.The Kluterthöhlensystem is henceforth protected as a National Natural Monument. (...)"
    The cave was created by leaching a layer of reef lime sloping down to the north and its passages extend over 5.8 kilometers into the rock. It is not a stalactite cave (so you will not expect stalactites or stalagmites). In summer and in winter, the cave is constantly 10 ° C. The climate is particularly suitable for people with respiratory problems (keyword: asthmatics) and so the Kluterthöle is also used therapeutically as a spa resort.
    There are different types of guided tours that can be read on the internet.
