The Kyffhäuser mountainsThe resort town of Kelbra is a home base for many guests for excursions into the Kyffhäuser Mountains as well as the Harz Range. The entire region is known for its unique caves, historic castles, and quaint open-air Museums.
The Kyffhäuser mountains have always been surrounded by an air of mystery and legends, with the castle ruins of the former imperial castle and the magnificent equestrian monument of Wilhelm I. at their centre. The "Heimkehle" cave is one ot Germany's largest gypsum karst caves with a lenght of 2 km. A guided tour will take you through its tunnels and rooms and past large lakes. Stolberg, too, is a marvellous town to see. Museums and squares remind visitors of one of the city's famous citzens, priest and leader of farmers Thomas Münzer.
