The cave is located under the southwestern edge of the mighty Rosenstein rock. The entrance is 135 meters above the valley floor and is open to the southwest. It is accessible from the ruins via footpaths and stairs. The cave rises slightly to the rear. It is therefore warm in winter, because forms in the background, a heat accumulation. This advantage of the favorable climate is obtained by the cave in particular by the structure of the cave interior. From the approximately rectangular entrance leads a 13 meter long hall slightly rising into the interior. At the end of the hall, a three-meter-high rock barrier seals off the rear part of the cave, forming a climate wave on the one hand and a sediment trap on the other. The cave narrows there and leaves only a narrow and low passage. The cave bears, who had to push through here, have chiselled the left cave wall with their fur. Behind this barrier, the ground drops steeply and then begins to rise again against the narrower and lower cave interior.
