Attractions

Heidenhöhlen near Zizenhausen

Heidenhöhlen – this is how the caves, passages and niches carved into the molasse rock are called. The Heidenhöhlen near Stockach’s district of Zizenhausen are a popular excursion destination. Discover two connected rooms as well as individual caves that were once used as a kitchen and pottery. Guaranteed fun for young and old!

The hike to the Heidenhöhlen leads directly into the prehistory of the Lake Constance area. One imagines the lake was created by the Rhine glacier and believes that it and its immediate surroundings are sitting on a huge plate of molasse, a soft conglomerate of marl and sandstone. This molasse layer, which is said to have arisen from harder sea and softer freshwater deposits, is estimated to be around 2.000 m thick in the Lake Constance area.

The circular hiking trail from Stockach begins at the parking lot in the Berlinger Siedlung. The approach by car is from Stockach past the Protestant church on the district road 6180 in the direction of Zoznegg. At the “Berlingersiedlung” turn left and drive up to the parking lot. This is where the 8.3 km long circular route to the Heidenhöhlen begins.

  • Please note: The caves are not accessible from mid-October to mid-April due to the hibernation of bats. However, the trail itself is open all year round.
  • Good shoes and a flashlight for the cave tour are recommended.
  • Warning: the path is not suitable for bicycles and prams.
