Park Cave

A staircase close to the Liszt's Home leads down to the slope and ends at the so-called "Needle's Eye", an artificial rock archway. The tunnels around the park cave run through the loose layers of riverbed rock and alluvial sediments in the Ilm. Fossilised plants and animals in the ceiling bear witness to a prehistoric lake. The exhibition in the park cave museum tells the story of the geological research of the Weimar travertine.
