This is actually a very small place. Short walks take you to the two floors with very few (but interesting) exhibits. Key attraction is the "Marienglas", really gorgeous natural crystals covering all walls of a mid size hall. Lit beautifully. Guides seem to have their heart in it, offering lots of facts, and anecdotes. Tour takes about 45 minutes, so squeeze this in with other activities on the same day. It seems that some couples choose to get married here! Free parking, a short walk uphill to the small ticket / souvenir shop. Two separate restaurants outside offer German traditional food (we did not try either one at 10 am).

Marienglashöhle are man made caves inside a tunnel. The caves are approachable by a little tram that runs almost once an hour. Alternately, you can walk for approx 20 mins from Rheinhardbrunn. The guided tour was unfortunately in English so we didnt understand much but the caves especially the lowest Level is beautiful. They do a Group Picture which can be purchased later.

I just had 3 friends from the USA visiting who actually were very keen on visiting a cave, especially a crystal cave. So we showed them to this place. We just managed to get the last guided tour. The service people were very friendly and helpful and gave us even a nice group discount :) The guide, a lady, knew lost about the cave and its history and was very helpful as well. I could ask her several questions and she was always patient and friendly. Especially since I had to translate everything in English and needed to ask a few more times. All in all a great little cave with real crystals... in most others you mainly find the dripstones. 5 stars for very friendly people, great service and happy guests!
