It has been said before but it is true that the lack of English tours is a pity. The written information provided is not sufficiently good. Having said that the cave, and particularly the dome are gems. Overall the visit is very worth it

We visited the cave without group and booked locally a tour through the cave. (You are not allowed to visit the cave on your own anyway). At the start of the tour our guide asked who does not speak German. Two groups indicated that they would prefer to include also an English translation. The guide totally ignored this and went...

We took a visit here with family (parents+teenager): the location is absolutely fabulous and the guide is very nice and funny. This will be a good opportunity to know the inner part of the marvellous world wich host us and his bigger strength.

We went there with the family. The gorge was very cold, but the at cassa they let us stay in the warmth. The tour was nice but they only spoke German, oder steirisch :) which some of my family couldn't understand. I have seen more spectacular caves but this one is also very nice.

I visited Lurgrotte Peggau (it's the bottom entrance to the cave that bores its way through the mountain)/ It was easyly accessible by train from Graz and about 15-minute walk. In summer there are just 1-hour tours, in German only, but don't worry - the guide does not speak too much (or at least our didn't) and they give you... More
