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.

The Bruderhöhle, a geotope protected by the state of Baden-Württemberg,  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  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.
