Grand-daughter called this an 'Enchanted Cave' & she's right. It's only a small cave, but so very, very beautiful. Definitely worth a visit. Safe for small children & wheelchair friendly. Helpful, knowledgeable & cheery staff.

The cave is relatively small but there's many details to see, beautiful iluminated and in detail described by the guide. However the entry fee is quite expensive for the limited time you can spend there.

This cave you must see. It's very beautiful and small. The girl who gave us a small tour is very friendly and enthousiastic. We were allowed to stay in the cave by our selves. It is nice and quiet in there.
