Many times I visited 2200 meters through the underworld of the Swabian Alb the Falkensteiner cave on my walks through the Swabian Alb. Every time I faced the first narrow point in the river bed of Elsach, I wish to penetrate even further into the cave. For some time I offer the outdoor adventure of the Organizer con la Natura in my online shop. This was the opportunity to meet my long-cherished wish me. I would like to report my adventurous visit to the famous Cave of Falkensteiner now. First a few details to the Falkensteiner cave. The Falkensteiner cave is a karst cave in southwestern of Germany, in the Swabian Alb.

It is located a few kilometres from bad Urach. The explored length of the cave is 4 kilometers. Visitors or how it is called in the jargon of the speleologists, be rider of the cave reached walking from the parking lot after approx. 500 meters away the impressive, 10 meters high caves portal. The Falkensteiner cave is a sea cave, the stream that rises from it, Elsach is called. To reach the first 20 meters mostly dry, the stream flows only after heavy rains there in his bed.

He is otherwise a few meters below the cave portal at the surface. Morning 9: 00 our small group at the car park between bad meets Urach and Grabenstetten. To know more about this subject visit Adam Kenworth. With a student and two young men are out of me. And of course the experienced cave guides Joan and Julian. The two enthusiastic cave experts were already dozens of times in the cave and they know on the inside. From the transporter, they unload our gear. Everyone gets thick wet suits with hood, a helmet and a cave lamp neoprene socks, gloves. Also an oxygen cylinder, scuba and diving goggles be taken to safety. The water level is low at the time of the beginning of March and previously said there is no rain, however should you never rely on, explains Joan.

After you had put the important things of the day behind, you forward to a cosy evening twosome on the sofa. On the table a glass of wine in her arms the woman and in the TV a good movie.

Life can be so beautiful sein…oder rather, could be so beautiful. As the movie with the Telekom would be connected, the phone rang precisely at the moment when the film started. Since I am by nature a phone ring, I certain short: \”You go.\”, which my wife replied equally briefly: \”Was clear.\” She pressed the button on the phone briefly with names and then rejoiced then: \”Hi Anke.\” How are you?\” After Anke had probably just issued its report on the General State of health, the key words were: \”when? Right? Yes super! Then in 20 minutes.\” While my dear wife said these words, I tried her wild gesticulating right to make that it was now really isn’t necessary. But she apparently thought that I wanted to distribute just the annoying fly that bugged me quite a while and hung up. The panic was in my eyes and my hair turned on, as I would have in a power socket. \”Now tell me not, Anke comes.\” I said with a small spark of hope in his voice.

Maybe I had understand yes also only slightly wrong. I had not! \”Yes my love, imagine. Anke is nearby and comes shortly after a cup of coffee over.\”flotete my better half. By for a cup of coffee. And \”short\” time certainly not! I know but Anke. Now only one half: escape! \”UM…Honey, I think of me ein…ich must also briefly times away.
