The cave tour was interesting and the fairy grottos are beautiful. The real surprise was the fairy world. They have done a great job turning the forest into an active fantasy-full adventure for kids. Who can resist fairies painting your face and granting wishes??(We'll get...More

Thank you very much for your feedback. We are happy about your visit. Our audioguides just can be used for the showcaves and our museum at the moment. Currently we are working on a solution to get them for our fairyworld as well. 😊

It is aimed at kids though adults will enjoy it. The grottos themselves are seen on a tour in German. They are ok but I actually was a bit underimpressed. There is a kind of park with various other things to do.
