The Blautopf is a fascinating natural phenomenon that you will find nowhere else in the world. The small lake is the source of the “Blau” (German for blue), a tributary of the Danube. Technically, it is not a lake but the result of an ancient spring that supplies water to the Blautopf 20 meters under the ground. The Blautopf is known around the world for its extremely blue color, which results from tiny lime particles that mix into the water.

The Tiefenhöhle Laichingen (Laichingen Vertical Cave) is one of deepest visitable caves in Germany and a real attraction. No wonder, since descending into the depth of the cave is an exciting experience for children and adults alike. The impressive rock formations and the narrow path that leads visitors down 55 meters into the cave are especially attractive. It is advisable to wear suitable clothing and durable footwear for the descend, since the path is rocky and even in summer the temperature in the lower parts of the cave is as cool as 8°C.
The climbing park in Laichingen is right next to Laichingen’s cave. It perfectly rounds off an eventful day trip to Laichingen, which is located 15 km from our hotel. At the climbing park, experienced experts will teach you how to safely cross the beams and installations high up between the trees.
