    The Oswald Cave is a karst cave on the Hollow Mountain, about 800 meters east of Muggendorf, a district of the Upper Franconian market town Wiesenttal in the district of Forchheim in Bavaria.

    The trail goes right through. A beautiful mural is located in the cave.

    Very beautiful cave to commit by all, if necessary even without flashlight. Many caves in the vicinity which are sometimes quite adventurous.

    A great cave, through the walk description should also carry out a way, but it is worth the visit with a flashlight, because it is zappenduster there :)

    Definitely worth seeing through cave with partly only 1.5m high. You should definitely have a flashlight with you to safely find the 15m long passage through the Oswaldhöle. An exciting "G`schicht" not only for children.

    This is the most impressive cave so far that I have seen in Fr. Switzerland (ignoring the well-known stalactite caves).
    The fascinating thing is that the official hiking trail goes right through the cave. So take a flashlight with you when planning the tour to avoid tripping or slipping!

    The sign above the cave says that the hiking trail leads through the cave👌😎, crack height 160 cm. So move your head.
    Otherwise a mega experience, and pure adventure.

    This stage on the Frankenweg is really one of the most beautiful, as well as this view.

    Class for children who at least do not bump their heads. A lamp is helpful.

    With a little luck, you will see the steam locomotive tugling through the valley. dampfbahn.net

    So here no one looks into the valley, but at most on a field / meadow of the plateau.
    9 users celebrate the view and 63 find the class?
    LOL
    The HL is positioned incorrectly. There is a view of the valley 250 meters to the west on the rocks with their own HL vantage points!

    It's worth the way! Fortunately, you have a flashlight with you today. And it doesn't need more. V. A. so that you don’t bump your head. :-)
