    Lorch has a "Schiller grotto", which lies hidden north of Bruck in the forest.
    This is not a grotto, but the rocky upper part of a ravine, covered with beech fir trees. Your horseshoe-shaped end forms a beautiful symmetrical, mostly anhydrous grotto with about 25 m long rock wings. In the lowest part of the cavity there is clayey rock. Presumably, after heavy precipitation, water will drain away and clear the cavity. Immediately next to it is an obviously completely new approach to cave formation by leaking water in precipitation-rich weather. 80 steps away on the right side of the ravine a smaller, but 5 to 6 m deep "Nebengrotte". Above it a rather thin sandstone roof slits in the middle on the front half. At the rear end of the column drops or drips about 3 m deep water. Also in this cave the lower area is made of soft material. Mighty, z.T. room-sized, fallen, moss-and-fern-covered, ivy-clad blocks are stored in the blade. Friedrich Schiller spent several years in his childhood in nearby Lorch. The naming of the sandstone grotto took place in 1905 on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of Friedrich Schiller's death.

    In addition to the Schiller Grotto, the Hasenpfad in northern direction is a dreamlike path through a varied forest area. Very exciting to run.
