Underground Forests of the Nebelhöhle Cave

Oneof the most beautiful and longest caves in the Swabian Alb – Nebelhöhle Cave, the"Misty Cave" - ​​has always attracted lovers of the unknown. Localhistorian Martin Krusius wrote in 1596 about one of the residents of Tübingen:"gone into smoke and darkness and can find no entry or exit". Alreadyin 1715 the cave’s first description appeared and a century later ElectorFrederick, fascinated by the unusual huge stalactites and stalagmites in Nebelhöhle,ordered to start Nebelhöhlenfest Festival. A few staircases  were built for the aristocratic public to passthrough the spacious halls of the cave and the halls were lit by thousands ofcandles. 

NebelhöhleCave with its Nebelhöhlenfest Festival became extremely popular after therelease of the novel "Lichtenstein" by Wilhelm Hauff in 1826. The festivalwas held in an easy state of mind of the nobility almost every two weeks. The visitorsof the blood gathered in the upper hall and sang the famous Ulrich Song. Sincethen, the hall has been informally called Ulrich Hall. Now Nebelhöhlenfest is heldonce a year at Trinity. Like a century ago, the bizarre stalactites thicketsare illuminated with light, old music is played and those who fearlessly enterthe misty cave, pour hot wine with spices on exit. On ordinary days, too, thereare guided tours of the underground forests. The main thing is not to forget totake along warm clothes  (the temperaturein the cave is about 8 degrees).
