more Info


info The Hölloch Parcours is the shortest of the cave tours and provides a varied mixture of knowledge transfer and exiting adventure. Certified SSH (Schweizerische Schule für Höhlenbefahrungen Hölloch) Cave Guides walk you through the formation of this mysterious underworld.

Participants first walk through the developed area, then in to mysterious sideways, where, more than 100 years ago, the Hölloch pioneers ventured in to, equipped with hob nailed boots and candle lit lamps to explore the Widmer and Saxer-Gang. Following their tracks, you finally get to "Zürichsee" the deepest spot within the whole cave system. As you progress, you will find wonderful drip stones, lime stones, and rock formations.

This tour is excellent as a trial lesson for the longer winter expeditions, which can only take place from November to March.

After the tour and upon request, the BBQ area near the caretaker hut can be used free of charge. This grill area is idyllically situated in a small wood next to a mountain stream. Please let us know if you intend to use this BBQ area so that we can make the necessary reservations.
