Do you want to explore the mysterious world beneath the earth? Then the Kluterthöhle in Ennepetal is just the place for you. The area of the cave stretches over a distance of about five kilometres and a total of 360 passages. The rock layers of the Kluterberg are about 385 million years old. The formation of the cave began about 60 million years ago. On a tour through the cave you will hike or crawl through a layer of reef limestone with a thickness of 12.5 metres. The Kluterthöhle cave in Ennepetal lies above the groundwater table, so you can walk through it without getting wet. Occasionally you can even spot a few stalactites - but many of them were irretrievably destroyed by human hands.
