Tips

  • OlĂ©

    From the forest, a nondescript path branches off to the wind hole. The path leads to the entrance of the wind hole, flanked by two piers.You can visit the cave. You descend steeply, left hand opens the ice chamber with beautiful sintering. Straight ahead you reach the huge Latène hall, which is bathed in mystical light by the ceiling window, the actual "wind hole". Beyond the wind hole is a smaller hall. ATTENTION: Next you should not go, as it goes steeply down, into a shaft and deeper cave parts! (Source: Book - Forgotten Paths - Franconian Switzerland)

    The cave is about 40 m off the path. The trail is difficult to see during the growing season.
    Ole should have described the spacious cave as a must.
    Cave "Windloch" with urn field, Hallstatt and Latène finds as well as human skeletal remains.

    Be sure to bring a flashlight. Be very careful with children at the end of the cave.

    Today there was no wind, but still marveled at the rock formation.
