At the end of the 18th century until the beginning of the 19th century, a certain Katharina Schunter lived in this cave. She earned her living by begging, at times she also helped with the field work of farmers from the surrounding area. As soon as she cooked in the cave, clouds of smoke rose through the holes in the cave ceiling. At the farmers in the vicinity it was called "D'Käther cooks". A marriage with the Catholic Bartholomä from Briel and the Protestant Katharina Schunter was not approved by the pastor from Altsteußlingen. The thus remained single Katharina died in 1828 at the age of 44 years. She was buried in Weilersteußlingen.
Katharina Schunter is immortalized on the one hand in the name of the cave "Käthra Kuche" and on the other in the foolish cry "Käthra Kuche" of the Ehinger Narrenzunft Spritzenmuck.
Her parents lived or lived in the nearby Schunterhöhle in Rauhtal.
Tradition has it that during the Thirty Years' War (1618-1648) farmers from Briel also sought refuge from plundering Swedish soldiers in this cave.
