    The Schönstein cave on the slope of the Long Valley is a split cave with a particularly extensive network of cave passages. It is one of the longest caves in the area Muggendorf / Streitberg and connected by a narrow corridor with the Brunnsteinhöhle. The Schönstein cave can be visited with guided tours. Further information on the tour can be obtained from the tourist office Muggendorf.

    Wow! I trusted myself in the Schönstein Cave to the hall, what an experience. Bring your headlamp and do not forget to mark the way, you are here very fast in another world.

    According to blackboard you should not enter the caves in winter. The most beautiful caves has a door and will be closed in October, the fountain cave has no.

    The Brunnsteinhöhle is accessible all year round. However, it is not too spectacular.
    You can clearly see the former slip to the Schönstein cave, which is now blocked with an iron bar.

    Entry in a small passage right at the end of the large entrance hall. You have to crawl until you come to a room with a lake and stalactites. Then it's over.
