    Two of the most famous collapse caves in Saxon Switzerland, the Lichterhöhle and the Hampelhöhle, are located on the south side. In 1461 the Kleinhennersdorfer Stein was first mentioned in a document as the Heynersdorfer Stein. Around 1870, the Königstein resident Friedrich Herrmann Hempel started the commercial mining of sandstone, which was crushed and ground and sold as abrasive sand to inns and soap factories. On December 17, 1918, Hempel lost his life when a rock collapsed.
    There is no signposted path leading to the Kleinhennersdorfer Stein. An ascent along a narrow path is possible from the saddle on the south side.

    In bright daylight in the cave you can manage quite well even without a flashlight, because not only by approach but also by several "windows" the light comes in.

    You had fun in hell. I found myself back in my childhood as a hell explorer.

    For children it is very exciting to explore the caves with the flashlight. But not all are the same. Please bring a picnic.
