The trademark of the Baumanns Cave is the special wealth of unique and different formations and structures of stalactites and stalagmites. Based on the current requirements for infection protection, you go on an approximately 50-minutes, individual tour (no guided tour) deep into the Harz Mountains. Information boards tell you everything you need to know about the Baumanns Cave, its dripstones and the cave dwellers.
The cave was discovered in the 16th century by the miner Friedrich Baumann, but at that time it was more or less by chance. Organized tours of the cave have been taking place since 1646.
The most famous visitor to this unique stalactite cave is and remains Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. He visited the cave several times and is name giver of the largest cavity inside the Baumanns Cave, the Goethe Hall.
On the beautiful underground natural stage in the Goethe Hall, theater performances and concerts take place in the middle of the dreamlike scenery of stalactites and stalagmites. Couples can also say yes here.
