It takes about 15 minutes to walk from the bus park to the stalactite cave, on a footpath through deciduous woodland with viewing points. There is a height difference of 50 m, which makes it difficult for the physically handicapped.
Viewing is only possible with a guided tour. The visitors are individually and competently introduced. A microfone system is available for large groups. You are able to enjoy the impressive acoustics during a short music performance at every tour. Guided tours take place daily, every half-an-hour, and take 20-30 minutes. Groups which make the journey by bus are given guided tours already from 9 a.m. and outside of opening hours by arrangement.
The Schulerloch is closed in winter to protect the bat population.
The small Schulerloch is not open to tourists. The exeptional feature about this remotedly located cavern is a rock engraving. A cast of the engraving is on display at the Stalactite cave, with the colour and size exactly the same as the original.
Grasses, flowers, trees, rocks are protected! Please help to keep the countryside clean! Only photography without flash is allowed in the caves. Flashlight encourages the growth of unwanted algae.
