    With the flashlight you can catch a glimpse inside. The cave is officially classified as collapse hazard and should not be entered.

    The Teufelshöhle is located on the western slope of the Pfaffental gorge near Prackenfels. A "metal ladder" leads to the cave itself, the path around the cave is slippery when wet, good shoes are required and caution is required. The Teufelshöhle is an artificially created Räthsandhöhle, the cave consists of a single large room with 56 meters x 52 meters. Its height is about 4.5 meters. Entering the cave is prohibited due to the risk of collapse.

    Devil's Cave, a small piece you can go in here. Worthwhile.

    The Teufelshöhle in the Pfaffental near Prackenfels is very mysterious. It consists of one huge room and is very impressive due to its sheer size and size. The lack of light and the randomly lying stones give the Devil's Cave an uncanny flair. According to legend, the dreaded robber baron, "Kuno von Kropfburg", hid the treasures stolen from pirating in the devil's cave below the castle hill.

    The Devil's Hollow we have only viewed from the outside. The descent is quite degenerate. The railings completely bent.

    Looks from the outside or sounds spectacular by name, but is officially collapsing! Please be careful.

    The cave is on private property and is at risk of collapse / closed.
    Access from above via the stairs is dangerous in the wet, as there are no real steps and the railings in the lower section are strongly bent.
