Here you can experience the Harz Mountains

In the middle of the Harz Mountains, in the Bode valley, you will find the so-called “cave village of Rübeland” with it´s unique treasures: the dripstone caves of Rübeland.

The Baumanns and Hermanns Cave are among the oldest and most famous natural show caves in the world.

In the course of the mountain formation, a fascinating, adventurous underground world with colorful and imaginative stalactites and stalagmites gradually emerged.

Various cave dwellers such as bats and the rare, so-called olms can be found here.

There is a lot to discover on the journey through our dripstone caves. With a little fantasy, you can see turtles, dwarfs, dinosaurs and more. However, both caves differ from each other and you will find that each one has its own charm.

Incredible – adventurous!

Dive into other worlds and be fascinated by the dripstone caves of Rübeland.
