Stalactite cave Maximilian grotto
Between Krottensee (about 2 km east of the 912-veld castle hotel Pegnitz River) and Konigstein (about 8 km east of the 912-veld castle hotel Pegnitz River), is the stalactite cave Maximilian grotto in the forest near Krottensee, which is about 4 km east of the 912-veld castle hotel Pegnitz River. Shards remains in the cave prove, that the Maximilian grotto already existed during the early Iron-age and that it had been inhabited by humans. Wild bears also used the cave as their dwelling.
The entrance to the Maximilian grotto leads through a wooden door. Then you have to go downstairs. At a depth of 26 meters underneath the surface, you'll reach the Leissner dome, the largest room of the stalactite cave. Sunlight streams into the Leissner dome through a wind hole. Other highlights are the Adlergrotte (eagle's grotto), the Orgelgrotte (organ's grotto), the Schatzkammer (treasure chamber) or the Schwarze Halle (black hall). You'll find fascinating and spectacular dripstone formations in these underground rooms. According to their looks, the stones carry names like elephant, baptismal font or Mother of God.
