Day Trip Switzerland: Höllgrotten Baar

If you are looking for enchanted and fairy-tale caves, the Höllgrotten (Hell Grottoes Caves) is a great place to be. My sister organised a little day trip to the world’s most amazing stalactite caves in Lorzentobel near Baar, Switzerland. I remember that I have been there with my family when we were kiddies, so this trip brought back some long-forgotten childhood memories. We had the perfect summer day, for this reason, we combined the day trip with a BBQ. We met up at the (free) big parking place between the caves and the Höllgrotten restaurant at around 10am. We had around 40 ~ 45 minutes until we went through the magical and fascinating underground world full of stalagmites, stalactites and small lakes. Guided tours are also available. It is quite fresh inside and very wet, so don’t forget to take a light jacket and flat shoes with you. After the unique and refreshing tour, we walked along the river called ‘Lorze’, to find a suitable place for our BBQ lunch stop. There are several fireplaces, but we finally found our perfect spot after approx. 30 minutes walk (there was also a public toilet available). The trip was heavenly and I hope that we can experience a similar day soon again.
