    With its 8 km in length, Nidlenloch is one of the largest cave systems in the Jura Area. It is under nature conservation and provides excellent possibilities for various tours. Apart from short visits or tours for schools and clubs, sporty expeditions are also possible.

    The name most probably derives from the yellow/white calcium deposits (rock milk), that look like "Nidle" – cream. Nidlenloch is probably a million years old and was formed during the ice age meld down. Nidlenloch is mostly very dry and has an alpine character.

    Höhlenbefahrungen Hölloch). On all our tours, we appeal to participant's environmental consciousness. Additional special, bespoke programmes can be arranged (e.g. workshop events, executive training, team building, etc.).
