Information for visitors

Visitors' parking

There is free, unattended parking on the road L3179. This whole area is a nature reserve and so the track up to the cave is not accessible for vehicles. Visitors can take one of two marked forest paths. You will need approximately 8 to 12 minutes to walk the distance from the car park to the cave.

Parking for disabled visitors

Visitors who are able to produce a valid disabled parking permit will be able to alight from their car directly at the cave. However, please observe the guide's instructions regarding where the car must then be parked.

Cave temperature

Please note that the temperature in the cave varies between 7-11°c all year round. We therefore recommend that you wear a jacket, pullover, or some other item of warm clothing during your visit. An oilskin jacket can be hired for a small fee from your guide at the cave.

Special climatic conditions in the Climate Chamber

The air in the cave is practically dust and allergen free. Furthermore, the high level of humidity can ease breathing for people with bronchial difficulties. It is possible to book your visit outside of the regular opening times (accompanied by a cave guide). For more information, please contact the Tourist Information Office in Steinau.
