Historically significant
Oct 2019
This is a tour that will enlighten you. unlike your usual castle tour of only tales of kings and queens, this tour takes you into the tunnels under the castle and tells of how the common people of the region as well as the royals used the land through times of peace and times of war. It is a great tour for all times of the year. There is a hick up, but well worth it.

One of the hidden gems in Saarland
Jun 2019 • Couples
Homburg mines are one of those hidden gems in Saarland region. They are the biggest sandstone caves/mines made by men in Europe. They are little bit hidden, I recommend to park on parking 1 or 2 (for free) next to the ruins of the castle, the mines are located closeby. If you want English guided tour, you need to let them know in advance. Otherwise they give you the map, flyer, safety instruction and you will go explore by yourself, which was completely ok for us. The admission was 5€/adult. It was a nice experience.

So beautiful
May 2019 • Solo
I was lucky enough to explore the caves relatively alone. The staff member (whose name I should have gotten) was incredibly cool and took myself and one other visitor on a quick 10min orientation. There’s so much to the history here that I never would have known without his guidance. He gave out a map with additional information and then left us to our devices. It was eerily beautiful. Parts of the caves have very low ceilings. If you can go alone I highly recommend it.

Beautiful overlook of Homburg

Plan on doing a lot of walking. I did not take the cave tour. Use caution as there are some steep areas.

Wonderful visit if baby would've behaved

The tour guide was very friendly and helpful. The caves were a little chilly so wear a jacket. Great Sunday adventure. My 16 month son didn't enjoyed being carried in a carrier so I wouldn't recommend bringing children under 3.

Worth seeing
Oct 2016 • Friends
It's a interesting sight if visiting Homburg and the 5 euro admission reflects the limited scale of the visit...They guide explains the intention to open additional levels and this may offer an increased length of visit. Facilities limited but German and English guide is informative and you gain a sense of the long history and occupation of the man made caves.

Fascinating!
Sep 2016 • Friends
These caves are extremely interesting and our guide conducted the tour in both German and English. Not all of the vast expanse is open to the public but what is open is worth seeing. Inside there is evidence of where yellow sand was excavated, by hand, for the making of glass many centuries ago.

Access is via a set of steps, either up or down. There are a few steps inside as well.

Currently only 1 of 12 floors is open but there are plans to open more.

If you climb the steps when you come out the view over Homburg and the surrounding area is excellent.

Cool caves
Aug 2016 • Family
We went as a family without the guided tour. Our kids are 3 and 5 and enjoyed the first 15 mins but then started losing interest. Only 11€ for the family so it was worth the money. Hosburg is a cool town and visiting the caves would my for a nice Saturday coupled with food and drink.
