The temperature in the caves is constantly around 10° Celsius and it may drip from the ceiling. It is therefore advisable to bring warm clothes and a raincoat. The caves can be easily accessed by stairs and paths, but closed shoes are recommended because puddles and wet spots have to be walked through.
Due to the partly narrow passages and stairs it is not possible to visit the Höllgrotten caves with wheelchairs, prams or buggies. Dogs are allowed in the caves, but must be kept on a leash.
After buying the tickets at the kiosk, a path leads up through the forest for about 10 minutes to the entrance. Walk through the root, mane and fairytale grottos and the enchanted castle in the upper cave, then take an outdoor path to the lower grotto, where you can admire the lake grotto, cathedral grotto, fable grotto and coral gorge! The exit is at the kiosk.
A trip to the Lorzentobel is worthwhile not just because of the unique dripstone caves, the surroundings offer many activities and refreshment possibilities for an interesting day trip.
