    📷 October 15, 2017 - The 25 m deep Königshöhle 1911/27 (locally also called dwarf cave or smoke stalls) is the eponymous site for the Neolithic Baden culture in Austria. 😊👍👍

    Nobody was here today, nice big cave, up on the plateau you can look into the cave - but be careful that nothing happens.

    Interesting cave, the Rauheneck ruin is not to be confused with the castle opposite (Rauhenstein ruin)

    Close to the former Rauheneck Castle, which together with the Rauhenstein controlled the entrance to the picturesque Helenental near Baden, lies the bizarre Königshöhle, which was inhabited as early as the Neolithic (2200 to 1800 BC). Archaeological excavations made such significant finds that the entire period is called "Baden culture". The presence of humans in the Latène and Hallstatt periods could also be proven, individual finds date from Roman times and the Middle Ages. The list of scientific publications about the cave alone fills an entire page of the book. It is not surprising that there are many legends about the cave. King Bela IV of Hungary is said to have sought refuge there, and there are reports of evil dwarfs and wild people. Here and there the Königshöhle still serves as a bivouac site, as some traces in the natural monument show.
