    A very special adventure awaits you on this tour: You visit a dark cave and can explore it on your own! Don't forget your flashlight, a warm jacket is also advisable. The circular hike to the Petershöhle is also a good tip for families with children, because it is very entertaining and there is so much to discover. The starting point of the tour is the hiking car park in Hartenstein. If you are traveling by public transport, it is best to take the train to Velden and take the bus from there. The super highlight is not long in coming. After only one kilometer and about 50 meters in altitude you will already reach the Petershöhle.First you arrive on the roof of the Petershöhle - the cave itself is quickly reached via a rocky path. Now it's time to go on a discovery tour! The approximately 70 meter long cave system was used as a place of worship in the Paleolithic. Ice Age animal skeletons of cave bears and cave lions were also found here. Attention: The Petershöhle is freely accessible all year round. However, to protect the bats, it cannot be entered between September 30th and April 1st.After your stop in the Petershöhle, you continue through sparse mixed forest. Again and again you come across small bizarre rock formations such as the Hainkirche. On your way you will also discover several stations on the “Hartensteiner Oberberge” nature trail. Among other things, a tree telephone, forest instruments, viewpoints and a barefoot path invite you to explore the forest habitat with all your senses. Finally it goes on towards Hartenstein.Another highlight of your hike is Hartenstein Castle, which greets you from afar. The knight's museum in the castle can only be visited on weekends, but the beer garden in the castle courtyard and the castle restaurant are open every day. Here you can take a leisurely break and enjoy the great view of the valley. From here it is only a stone's throw, then you are back at the starting point of the tour.
