"Bärenhöhle" (Bears' Cave)

Skelett Bärenhöhle (Mythos Schwäbische Alb)The Bears' Cave is probably the most famous show cave in the Swabian Alb. This cave was only discovered and opened to the public 50 years ago and is connected to the Karlshöhle (Karl's Cave), discovered in 1834. The cave originally consisted of two caves and was formed in the Lower Chalk formation of the White Jurassic. The cave can be accessed to 271 m and is particularly notable for its vast abundance of stalactites and stalagmites in all shapes and sizes. A bear's skeleton at the back of the cave is an indication of the numerous bear bones which have been found in the cave.
