    The natural monument Frauenhöhle is located north of the Bug Egloffstein.
    The naturally formed karst cave with its three entrances hides in the forest.

    The cave entrance with the door is not far into it, the large cave entrance, however, allows a cave inspection. Not very easy due to slippery soil and only with very good lamps useful. After the descent and the first bend you already lose contact with the outside world, neither light nor sound penetrate. In the light, white, glowing spiders with their nets provide a bit of a scary factor or interest, as they like it.

    Only to pray with "cave equipment". You are barely a few meters in the cave and you can not see any light from the outside.

    Great rock with 3 caves.
    The top of the caves is the largest and deepest. It goes up to an imposing entrance upright about 35 m deep; to take it literally, the passage leads diagonally downwards and it is slippery as described above. Flashlight is a must.
    Right below is the second cave with the old door frame and the information boards. After trying to install here a show cave (therefore still the old Lorengleise) the depth of engagement with approx. 20 m is disappointing; everything is destroyed.
    The third and smallest cave is slightly above on the north side; There is an ascending path in the arch on the right around the rock. The cave is about 4 m deep walkable.

    In winter take into account that some animals (bats) hibernate.
