Not only the Hölloch cave is unique in its wonders but also the cave’s surroundings, its surface. Ferns, the rocky Karst territory, unspoilt nature paths, weathered tree trunks and you might not even be overly surprised when your imagination plays tricks on you and you saw a gnome or fairy playing peek-a-boo from behind a fern or tree. Discover this unique territory on a karst hike or roam the virgin Bödmeren forest. The Karst hike is situated in the region of the “Silberen”, a mountain top at the Pragel pass. A protected area where there’s lots to learn and discover about its rich geological history as well as traditional stories past on over generations and last but not least about General Suworow. This is roughly a half-day tour. The Bödmeren reserve consists of 156 ha of prime virgin forest. No parrots or monkeys live here but a unique endemic diversity of plants is to be discovered that will be brought closer to you by our expert guide. Half-day tour. Our suggestion: Either of these programmes can easily be combined with a tour in the Hölloch cave to give you a thorough idea basically from top to bottom. Allow ¾ of a day to a full day depending on your choice of the Hölloch cave tour. If you only have half a day you could do a short tour in the Hölloch cave with a little geology tour – there’s a Karst formation close to the Hölloch entrance that can be admired. Roughly a half-day.
