The romantic part of the park includes the grottoes, the rock overhangs and a huge rock gate, which the hiker reaches on a stepped path on the steep descent from Känzele.
Particularly impressive is the Nebelhöhle, a rock grotto more than 5 meters high and 10 meters deep, which during the use of Inzigkofens as a summer residence by Hereditary Prince Karl-Anton and his young family in the 1840s was furnished with tables and wooden benches and along with ancient wooden weapons the rock walls was decorated.
At the end of the hunt, the course, the game, was lined up and "blown".
The picturesque rock formations are washings of mass limestone that were organically formed from sponge reefs in the tropical, warm White Jurassic Sea around 150 million years ago.
The washouts and the entire valley landscape were shaped by the Schmeie, whose bed the Danube took over here after the crack ice age.

It is no coincidence that the monastery rock path takes its name. In addition to the princely Park Inzigkofen with monastery, Amalienfelsen and the legendary Teufelsbrücke over the Höll Gorge, there are numerous rock formations to be admired, which can be found everywhere in the landscape. Again and again you catch beautiful views of the picturesque floodplain landscape of the Danube, which is a constant companion on the first half of the round tour.

While the two Zollern castles, Beuron Abbey and the castles above the Danube Valley are well known, the Princely Grottoes in Inzigkofen are still an insider tip. Incomprehensible, there is one sight after another at a short distance. Not only the amazing stone caves themselves, but also the nearby Teufelsbrücke, the view of the Amalienfelsen, the pretty path along steep walls, like the Inzigkofen monastery, with its enchanting herb garden are worth a visit.
