Would you like to test the waters first before you allow yourself to go on a bigger tour? Then this is the right option for you. We explore the first 700 meters of the developed part of the cave system. This is also the area the caving pioneers have worked on and provided with paths and stairs over a 100 years ago.
You’ll learn about the history of the Hölloch its formation, its hidden treasures and the creatures that live within. There’s some fun stuff with acoustics and vision versus darkness to play with. It’s really an ideal tour for everyone who’d like to have a taste on what it feels like to be in such a vast subterranean environment. At the end of the tour, you will enjoy the special atmosphere of the enlighted Hölloch Event Location with a short cave concert.
To round off your tour we recommend a nice aperitif or “raclette” with candlelight and music for your group.
