Karst

Enter the dark and fascinating world of karst caves.


The largest cave areas of Germany are to the north and west of Nuremberg, that is, die Fränkische Schweiz (´Swiss Franconia´) and die Schwäbische Alb (the Swabian Alb). In the karst department, conditions for the existence of a karst area as well as peculiarities and appearance are shown.

The replica of a cave built on the scale of 1:100 is shown opposite a detailed diagram.
Hoehle



Baer The cave bear was one of the inhabitants of karst caves in prehistoric times. A large cave bear skeleton is on display, along with the rare and fragile skeleton of a newborn or embryonic cave bear cub, the size of a small domestic cat.
The skeleton of a mole can be observed more closely through a magnifying glass.
