    If you are looking for some relief from the steep climb, the cool stone bench in the Bruderhöhle is the ideal place for it.

    As you can see, some have already made their fire here. Legal? No idea, but a good shelter (with which one can also indicate * ggg *) in any case!
    Make the descent in any case, because you can see below a corridor (collapsed) still.

    The cave probably got its name from a monk who lived there around 1480 as a hermit.

    The brother cave on the western slope of the Nagold Valley near Calw-Hirsau is more rock than a cave. The brother cave is designated as a natural monument and geotope.The entire mountain slope at the Bruderhöhle is covered with blocks of colored sandstone. A visit to the locality is worthwhile not only because of the small cave alone, but also because of the many sandstone rocks.

    Small living cave in the sandstone. The cave is said to have been inhabited by a hermit monk as early as 1480. There is a stone bench in the cave and a brick smoke vent in the back.

    The Bruderhöhle, a geotope protected by the state of Baden-Württemberg, [1] lies in the Middle Buntsandstein and was created by weathering the rock. There are clear gaps in the surrounding rock formations, and honeycomb weathering can be seen. The cave is approx. 12 m long, 2 to 3 m high [2] and accessible to visitors without restrictions. In the cave and also in the vicinity of boulders, pronounced stratification structures can be seen. The cave probably got its name from a monk who lived there as a hermit around 1480.

    Well, it's probably not a cave, but it's still worth seeing.
