If exotic and unfamiliar breeds of wildlife wasn’t enough, take a drive to the Sauerland region and the curious Atta cave in Attendorn. This natural phenomenon was discovered in 1907, when quarrymen, busy blasting away a rock facia, opened a glistening labyrinth of stalagmites and stalactites, as artistically formed as the work of any sculptor. Quite by chance, the incredible Atta Cave, formed several millions of years ago had been opened - never seen before. The cave was later named after Princess Atta, who also gave her name to the nearby Hanseatic town of Attendorn.
