    The Schiller Cave, as well as the Tulkah Cave nearby, is the scene of the novel "Rulamann" by David F Weinland.

    This 91-meter-long walk-in cave is the Tulkahöhe of Rulaman, where the hero lived with his family. For decades, the Rulaman was a must-read for young people in the area. Rulaman a stone age chief is the hero of the eponymous youth book.

    In summer a welcome cooling off from the heat.
    Since the cave is not developed, you should wear appropriate clothing and footwear. It is wet and slippery.
    You also have to have a flashlight.

    And always be careful. The ground is quite slippery. And there are places where it would be inconvenient to slip.

    The Schiller Cave, also called Schilling Cave, is one of the caves of the Swabian Alb.
    In winter she is closed to love the bats.

    The wild Schiller or Rulaman cave (after the Stone Age Roman heroes) is freely accessible from April to October. Who wants to explore further than a few meters should have a flashlight and take care of the residents ;-)

    You can enter the cave yourself from 15 April to 15 November. Good flashlights are recommended

    The cave should be open again from April 15th. I would not rely on that during the Corona period.

    In the beginning it goes relatively flat into the cave. Further back, it goes down steeply after a rocky archway.

    Coming down the valley, a small path leads to the Schiller cave, which is closed. Then it goes up steep steps towards the Hohenwittlingen ruins.

    We went to this cave yesterday with our 🐷 SAUvival hiking group and were very impressed. 😀
    A really great cave 👍
    Without good shoes (damp and slippery) and without a flashlight 🔦 you shouldn't even go in there!
    And of course you shouldn't be there alone 😏

    A good opportunity to cool off in the summer heat, flashlight and good shoes are mandatory as it is very slippery.
    It is also worth going a little further.
    It is relatively narrow so that, depending on the number of visitors, there were sometimes small traffic jams for in and out visitors.

    Great cave in which you can enter a few meters with a flashlight. A real experience especially for children

    The Schiller Cave is a natural monument on the Swabian Alb. The cave is approx. 245 m long and was used as an escape cave in various wars.
    Today the cave offers shelter for bats to hibernate. This is why the cave is closed with a gate from November 1st to May 15th every year.

    With the information I have now, next time I will come back armed with a good flashlight. Without it makes no great sense.
