Segeberg Kalkberg CaveExplore the mysterious world of Segeberg’s Kalkberg Cave. Witness bizarre rock formations, strange shadows, and – if you’re lucky – live bats.
Our cave guides lead the way through the only show cave in Schleswig-Holstein. With their intriguing stories about the geology and history of the caves, about a species of cave beetles found only here in Bad Segeberg, and about the bats that spend their winters here, they turn the tour of the cave into an extraordinary experience.
Tours are held constantly during opening hours as required. Waits are never longer than 60 minutes.
In Winter, more than 20000 bats use the Kalkberg cave for hibernating. Eight species stay here for the winter, the largest number are the Daubenton’s Bats and Natterer’s Bats. Tightly huddled together they spend about four months here. Come spring, when the insects are back, too, and there is fresh food outside, they wake up and move out to their summer habitats on lakesides and in forests and open spaces such as gardens or parks.
