    Be careful when climbing as it is very slippery due to the foliage. Only for experienced. Nevertheless, it is worth exploring the caves to a certain ridge. Then helmet and Co. is absolutely necessary.

East below the dwarf cave is the Kühloch at Hollenberg (D 157), a resulting from perversion cover cave.

    Quote from Wikipedia
    The cave can be walked upright about 20 m deep, then it continues only creeping. Since I have not tried it, I can not say if the gait will expand again later.

    With flashlights you can go with children a bit into the cave and penetrate about 20m deep in different passages.
