The Frauenmauerhöhle is a 640 metre long passage leading through thewhole mountain called Frauenmauer. It has several rooms and passages onboth sides, one of the most interesting is the ice chamber just a viewsteps from the west entrance lefthand side.

Although this cave is not really difficult, it is very dangerous to get lost without light inside a cave, and soseveral lethal accidents happened in this cave. The dead are good arguments for the certified cave guide who does cave tours today. So this cave is a sort of semi show cave, as it is not developed in any way, but it is guided like a showcave.

This classical part of the cave, a640m long through passage, is only a small part of the cave system. It is thelongest cave system in the Hochschab massive and more than 32km long.The whole system is called Frauenmauer-Langstein-Cavesystem, as thosetwo caves were originally explored independently. It has eight entrances allover the mountain range and covers an area of 1.2km from east to west and 1.5kmfrom north to south. Many parts are really huge, especially the area around the Walpurgisdom. The cave has a passage pointing to nearby Langstein-Eishöhle (LangsteinIce Cave), where a connection has recently been discovered.

Man erreicht den Westeingang der Frauenmauerhöhle Präbichl Passhöhe (Gehzeit vier Stunden) oder von der Gsollkurve der B 115, Eisenbundesstraße (Gehzeit zwei Stunden).

Ortskundige Höhlenführer stehen von 15.Juni bis 15.September  an allen Samstagen, Sonntagen und Feiertagen zur Verfügung. Führungszeiten am Osteingang neuerdings um 12 und 14 Uhr und am Westeingang um 11 und 13 Uhr. (bei Schlechtwetter keine Führung)
