One of the “most colourful show caves in the world”.


The mineral-rich dripping and spring water has created a grotto landscape which, according to the Guinness Book of Records, is one of the “most colourful show caves in the world”. A 60-minute guided tour takes you down 3 levels to the former mine. Another highlight is the light and sound show in the fairytale dome. Children can enjoy the adventure world in the company of adults, without age restriction. Due to the nature of the path, prams are not allowed. Please wear sturdy shoes. In the nearby Fairy Grotto Park, you can become an explorer yourself in the Grottoneum and the Adventure Museum and perhaps meet a real fairy.

Mouth and nose protection must be worn in the museum and all sales rooms.
Wearing a mouth and nose protection is recommended for the guided tour in the show caves.
