#deinsauerland / Outdooractive POIs / Heinrichshöhle

Only in Hemer! The stalactite-adorned realm of the cave bear at the foot of the rock sea.

The Heinrichshöhle is decorated with fantastic stalactite formations and has up to 20 m high fissures in its rear area. The cave is famous for rich bone findings of ice-age animals, e.g. cave bear, mammoth, giant deer, cave hyane, woolly rhinoceros and many others. A 2.35 m long cave bear skeleton and the lifelike model of a cave bear are particularly impressive.
