Even if you have visited the Höllgrotten caves many times before, you will hardly recognise them now; the layout of this natural monument was completely overhauled in the winter of 2011/12.


The 6,000-year-old Höllgrotten caves are showing themselves in a whole new light for 2012’s summer season: the cave walk runs from top to bottom, making it less physically demanding for visitors and revealing a previously unseen side to the grottos. Thanks to cutting-edge LED lighting, visitors can explore the full array of shapes and colours in these natural rock formations for the first time. You’ll be amazed! Visitor orientation and info panels have been revamped a new look and the audioguide, which is perfect for children, allows you to listen in on Tüüfeli, the mischievous cave spirit, telling a family just how the caves came to be formed.
