History


Description

The cellars of Egglofstein have a long history. It is supposed that the first cellars were built in the Middle Ages. A part of the cellars is inside a layer of sandstone, which supposedly was mined for the stone and the sand which was used for buildings. But most of the cellars were used to store beer, sausaged, meet, potatoes and beets.

There are three main entrances and 14 long adits, the longest one 700m long. And there are several side passages and entrances.
