The Hollgrotten is a natural cave system which is very well prepared and a great place to visit in summer time when temperatures are above 35 degrees Celsius. It is nice and cool and the walk through the cave is easy and full of surprises....More

The place turned out to be much better than I expected. It was around 45 minutes of walking through the caves, admiring various formations made by water during thousands of years. Everything is well prepared, and the lights add a bit of charm. I advise...More

A lovely place to come and wind down after a busy day in the office, enjoy the hospitality of the staff, have a beer or 2 and definitely have a rösti. The best

The drive to the caverns was through a long and skinny forest road, just when I thought I was going the wrong way, we finally arrived. The self-guided tour doesn't take that long, but it is pretty interesting to see how the various structures were...More

I was looking for something to do near Zug and came across this cave. It was worth the visit. It is nicely lit, well maintained. But if you don't really like caves, it's not for you. It's a cave 😁. I enjoyed the experience.

It's a nice trip to see something new and different. It's a 30 min drive from Zurich and the last part of the track is in the forest. I wouldn't recommend it for old people if they are not fit and sporty. Once you buy...More
