    Between Sandbergweg and Brunnenröhrenweg, on the southwest side of the rugged Kulms, there are 15 communal cellars that divide in several times. The number 1712 engraved in a door stick represents the oldest reference to the year of origin of the cellar. After giving up the joint brewery shortly before the First World War, v.a. Potatoes and beets stored. The local innkeepers continued to use the cellars until the 1950s as a beer cellar. During the Second World War, the cellars served as air raid shelters, so escape connections were created between them. In particular for the high-risk group of bats, e.g. for the brown long-eared and the fringed bat, rock cellars are indispensable for their hibernation. The harsh cellar ceilings and niches provide the nocturnal mammals with suitable hanging places and hiding places. When the doors are closed, the cellars show even temperature conditions (about 8 ° C) and a constant humidity. Thus, the conditions in Felsenkeller correspond to those in natural caves.
