Tips

  • Kauai

    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, quite a few people have already made their fires here. Legal? No idea, but a good shelter (which you can also brag about *ggg*) in any case!
    Definitely make the descent as well, as you can still see a (collapsed) passage further down.

    The Brother's Cave on the western slope of the Nagold Valley near Calw-Hirsau is more rock than cave. The brother cave is designated as a natural monument and geotope.

    The entire mountain slope at the brother cave is covered with red sandstone blocks. A visit to the site is not only worthwhile because of the small cave alone, but also because of the many red sandstone rocks.

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

    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.

    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.

    Rock shelter - unfortunately we couldn't really find the path below the cave and then had to fight our way down the steep slope in a somewhat adventurous manner.

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

    A place steeped in history. A small part can be walked on.

    Well, actually it's nothing more than a place to rest during a break - everything is artificially prepared and partially reinforced

    The way to the cave requires sure-footedness.

    The brother cave, a natural monument and geotope protected by the state of Baden-Württemberg, is located in the Middle Buntsandstein and was formed by weathering of the surrounding rock. There are clear clefts in the surrounding rock formations, honeycomb weathering is recognizable. The cave is about 12 m long, 2 to 3 m high and accessible to visitors without restrictions. In the cave and also in the nearby boulders, distinct layering structures can be seen. The cave probably got its name from a monk who lived there as a hermit around 1480.
