Overview

Leave central Frankfurt to travel north toward Attendorn, a town just south of the city of Dortmund. Relax in the comfort of your luxury vehcile, and then stop at Biggesee, a large lake that’s home to Germany’s famous Atta Cave.

Head below ground, walking along the 262-foot (80-meter) natural corridor, before entering the beautiful dripstone cave itself. Gaze in awe at the calcite crystal formations that abound and admire the impressive stalactites that drip from the cave ceilings. The formation of the cave is believed to have begun some 400 million years ago, and your guide will explain its geology and history as you explore.

Walk back up to ground level after your cave tour, and then visit a gasthaus (traditional pub) for lunch on the terrace (own expense) before leaving Biggesee behind to travel south to Braunfels Castle. One of the oldest fortresses in Germany, the vast castle is rich with history dating back to the 13th century.

Braunfels Castle (build approx. 1240 AD), a mighty medieval Castle with Knights Hall, state rooms and contemporary furniture, art gallery, parlors, weaponary of tournaments, an impressive courtyard and much more.

Please take note in case Braunfels Castle should be closed due to unforeseen reasons, we will visit a different castle instead in the same area. 

Return to your vehicle at the pre-arranged time, and then travel back to Frankfurt. Your tour finishes at the start point in the early evening.
