Chair on cave excursion near Neukirchen

Symbolic picture for the article. The link opens the image in a large view.

On the 18th of October, our chair used the golden October weather to explore the numerous caves and hills on the southern edge of Franconian Switzerland around Neukirchen near Sulzbach-Rosenberg. The highlight of our hike was a guided tour through the 16 meter deep Easter Cave. The dripstone cave impresses with a multitude of stalagmite and stalagtite formations, which grow over centuries in a particularly stable atmosphere (similar to that of our laboratories, only more humid). Many thanks to our guide for this insight under the ground!
