    The coral limestone stone chambers were created more than 250 million years ago in the Upper Devonian as corals and were washed out in the following epochs of the water. They were used as living and burial caves in the La Tene period (circa 400 years BC). Finds from these caves are mostly kept in the Landesmuseum Wiesbaden.

    One should look at the caves, if there is no leaves on the trees. You can see more then.

    The small and large stone chamber are located in the nature reserve "Erdbacher Caves". High on the valley side, some of the fossil parts of the Erdbachhöhlensystem were exposed by the weather and partially destroyed by erosion.

    Geologically interesting area - only too thick you should not be ;-)

    The small stone chamber is very cool with the small passage, especially for slightly larger children. With a flashlight you can walk without problems, or partially crawl when you have grown up. 🙂🏊‍♂️
