    Grotto tours are always available on the hour. For this you have to press a blue bell there at the ticket booth, when no one is there. Inside the cave is very nice, Admission for adults 4,50 Euro (as of August 2018). Guided tour takes about 30 to 45 minutes.

    Opening times with guided tours can be found in the photos. Important to wear a jacket because it is cold in the grotto.

    The grotto can be visited with a guided tour. You should definitely take this into account. The 400m walk through the grotto is worthwhile.
