This full-day tour begins in Frankfurt with a 2-hour drive north to Attendorn and the Biggesee Reservoir region, home of the famous Atta Cave. Walk below ground to the “king of the dripstone caves,” following an 80-meter-long access gallery into the colorful world of stalactites, stalagmites and stalagmates — a fascinating limestone paradise, indeed.
After the tour, head back to the entrance above ground and enjoy lunch at the cave restaurant and café, Himmelreich, before traveling south via vehicle to Braunfels Castle, one of the oldest fortresses in Germany. Explore the ruins, visiting the 12th-century torture chamber and tower as well as the wine cellar and herb garden. Finally, visit the German Bell Museum inside the castle to see over 50 bells on display and learn more about the history of bell making in Germany.
The tour concludes with a return trip to Frankfurt.
