Lamprechtshöhle Saalach valley
The Lamprecht Cavern writes world records!
It is the longest passageway cavern of the world! One also knows the Lamprecht Cavern with the names Lamprechtshöhle, Lamprechtsofen and Ofenloch.
With its total expansion of 35 kilometres, the Lamprechtshöhle in St. Martin near Lofer is part of the largest cavern systems in Europe.
Polish cavern researchers discovered another cavern entrance at an elevation of 2178m in 1993, the Lamprechtshöhle is since then the longest passageway cavern of the world.
A part of the cavern was developed and made easily accessible for visitors. The safe paths, stairs and footbridges go about 600 metres into the cavern. You traverse many tunnels in the Lamprechtshöhle and you finish in a large hall. It surmounts a height difference of 70 metres.
By the way, in summer, when it is hot outside, the cavern is a particularly popular destination because the cavern interior has cool temperatures.
The Lamprechtshöhle is open in winter and summer and it is an unforgettable experience for the whole family.
