This Magical Unicorn Cave in Germany is Stunning

This Magical Unicorn Cave in Germany is Stunning. I know what you are thinking, why is this cave called the Unicorn Cave when unicorns aren’t even real? Or, are they? Did unicorns exist? I can almost hear you thinking, is that a real unicorn fossil in front of that cave? If you don’t believe in unicorns, maybe after reading this post you will?

Entrance into the Unicorn Cave in Germany (Einhornhöhle)

Surrounding the Unicorn Cave, there was a beautiful forest with trails to walk.

The sign on this tree points visitors in the direction of the cave which is called “Einhornhöhle.” In English, that’s “Unicorn Cave.”

Equally beautiful was the forest walk getting to the Einhornhöhle (Unicorn Cave)!

Settled by Neanderthals over 100,000 years ago, this natural cave is 1,969 feet (600 meters) deep of open tunnels in the Harz Mountains.

We took a guided tour into this Unicorn Cave (Einhornhöhle)

Even though we’ve explored many underground wonders such as caves and tunnels in the USA and abroad, this is the most magical and beautiful cave that I have ever seen.  We love to learn by hands-on studying and exploring history, geology, cultures, and more via different underground wonders in this world.

This is the most magical and beautiful cave that I have ever seen.  

Unicorns in History

Unicorns are written about in the Bible. For example, Job 39:9-10 (KJV) the King James Version of the Bible talks about unicorns. In the Bible, the word unicorn is actually a translation from a Jewish folklore beast known as the re’em.

Greeks believed in Unicorns as real animals.

Even William Shakespeare said, “Now I will believe that there are unicorns.

Unicorns are Real

According to CNN, A well-preserved fossilized skull found in Kazakhstan reveals the shaggy unicorn creature was still alive and walking this earth a mere 29,000 years ago.

Fascinating Narwhals (Unicorns of the sea) are alive today.

Unicorn Cave in Germany

In medieval times, unicorns were painted, added to stained glass windows and even statues. The legend in Germany is that bones found in this cave are unicorn bones which were a popular remedy used in the Middle Ages.

Did they discover real unicorn bones in this cave?

Why not stop and look for unicorn bones, and see a stunning cave? Wait, there is even more that I must make sure to include in this post according to my three boys. Now, this is important, the rocks and dirt outside and all around the cave were glittery and rainbowed colored. Yes, seriously!! Even after 30 minutes of looking at the ground and gathering rocks, I wasn’t sure if I would be able to even get my boys to join the cave tour.

Look at the color of these rocks just outside the cave!!
My boys were super excited to just spend some 30 minutes examing and collecting some of these rocks and gems
When I darkened the image, you can really see how everything sparkles and is glittery. During the daytime,my camera didn’t capture the full impact of glittering that we were seeing when there.
Another picture of the forest trails around the Einhornhöhle (Unicorn Cave) which were really nice! We spent 2 hours walking the forest area around the Cave.

It all boils down to this, untouched Harz Mountain forests to explore, a unicorn cave, magical glitter and rainbow rocks all-around a unicorn cave, and even unicorn toilets, basically makes this a fun exploration visit for anyone to discover in Germany.

We literally had a “glitter and unicorn kind of day!”

My Adorable Unicorn Niece

This post is dedicated to my precious, adorable, magical, Unicorn Niece.

During our zoom the other day (COVID 2020), she put on a unicorn headband and I asked her if she believed in unicorns being real. I can’t wait to take her to the Unicorn Cave in Germany!!!

But currently, I’m just wishing for unicorn miracles to get past COVID so I can hold her in my arms again!!
