Fascinating journey through time

Obir stalactite cave

The Obir stalactite caves are located near the market town of Eisenkappel-Vellach within the Hochobir massif and on the Unterschärffler-Alpe, a once flourishing mining area. 

Fascinating journey through time 

Embark on a journey through time millions of years in the past. The incomparable mixture of nature and civilization from the symbiosis of 200 million years of history and modern technology fascinates people more than ever before.  

A sense of awe

The caves were discovered in 1870 by miners in search of lead and zinc. You can make your way faster and deeper into the mountain on walkways created by nature. Today, an underground world, in which carefully placed light illuminates the absolute darkness, reveals itself to the visitor. Allow yourself to stand in awe of what the miners once saw.
