Visit the Grottoneum

For those who ever wondered how the magnificent caves at the Saalfeld Feengrotten were created, a unique, interactive museum has been created just for you. Those searching for dusty showcases and large wall charts will have to hunt in vain. At the Grottoneum, listening, reading, touching, smelling and tasting are the order of the day. Medieval miners, precious minerals and giant scorpions from the Silurian Sea await you on your tour of discovery through this subterranean world.

Learn how a dripstone grows and how molecules bind together to create minerals. Let your imagination run wild as you puzzle together the colourful minerals and the molecules of the fairy caves. Visit the Grotto cinema and follow the area’s 440 million-year history. These and many other stations of interest await you. Here, even children become explorers.

Mini-computers with information in English are available for use during your guided tour. A monetary deposit and identity documents are required as a bond during use. These will be returned upon completion of the tour and receipt of the audio guide.

This offer is combinable with a visit to the Feenweltchen Fairyworld Adventure Park and the Feengrotten Display Mine. We recommend the purchase of our attractive Feengrotten Combo-Ticket.
