Interested in a professional photo tour?
Are you interested in a photo tour of the caves under the guidance of a professional photographer? Mr. Jürgen Lamprecht organizes photography workshops and organizes guided tours through our cave. 3 to 4 hour stay in the caves is therefore nothing uncommon and will, surrounded with all of this beauty, pass in a flash. Within this tour you will learn how to capture the beauty of dripstones in the best way possible. You will use your own camera equipment (DSLR or system camera and tripod recommended). The maximum number of participants is 3 persons, as otherwise in certain parts it may get a little too tight. If interested, you can subsequently also learn the basics of photo-editing and panorama assembling. For further information, please do not hesitate to contact us!
